3)Due to the approaching inclement weather, the basketball games scheduled for tonight 2/25 are cancelled. Both schools Jesse Carson and Ralph L. Fike have county travel restriction and are unable travel to Northern. We will tentatively reschedule the games for Thursday 2/26 (by the state policy) in hopes that all school systems involved will be in session tomorrow. The forecast doesn’t look favorable for playing. If there are cancellations of school tomorrow we will adjust the schedule again and ask the state for further guidance. The anticipated schedule is listed below.

Thanks for everyone’s patience in the situation,

5)from Rick Strunk with the NCHSAA:

Due to inclement weather, which is now forecast for across the state starting tonight, any NCHSAA basketball playoff game which cannot be played today (Wednesday, February 25) should be postponed and rescheduled for Thursday night (February 26).

The NCHSAA staff will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional information about games scheduled for Thursday by mid-morning on Thursday. Scheduling should be done on a day-by-day basis only, but the NCHSAA is also exploring a variety of alternatives if postponements continue.

One other change: schools should note that games may start no earlier than 4 p.m. on Thursday, provided the schools mutually agree to that earlier time due to the weather. A time earlier than 4 p.m. must be requested and approved by the NCHSAA.

Schools are reminded, if there is a postponement, that it is important to update the appropriate section with details of game time and date on the NCHSAA basketball brackets.
