Snow postpones Wabash Valley athletic events

TERRE HAUTE — What kind of weather is Indiana supposed to get for high school basketball sectional time? Oh yes, snow.

And the snow that fell Tuesday was enough to cause postponements for all of the sectionals that include Wabash Valley teams. As of Tuesday evening, all sites were announcing a one-day postponement with the rest of the schedule to remain unchanged.

That would mean that Terre Haute South’s game at the Class 4A Martinsville Sectional will be at approximately 7:45 p.m. Wednersday, following the 6 p.m. opener between Mooresville and the host Artesians.

At the Class 3A West Vigo Sectional, Sullivan and Brown County will now tip off at 6 p.m. Wednesday, followed by Owen Valley against Greencastle.

The single-game opener of the Class 2A Cascade Sectional between South Putnam and the host Cadets is now 7 p.m. Wednesday, with the doubleheader originally scheduled for Wednesday — Cloverdale vs. Monrovia and Tri-West vs. North Putnam — will be played Thursday.

Linton’s game against Mitchell in the Class 2A Paoli Sectional is now the second game Wednesday, following the opener between North Knox and South Knox.

Rockville vs. Turkey Run and Attica vs. Covington will be played Wednesday at the Class A North Vermillion Sectional, and Union will play North Central and White River Valley will battle the host Eels Wednesday at the Class A Clay City Sectional.

All games scheduled Friday and Saturday remain unchanged.

Problems could occur, however, if snow removal doesn’t proceed at a rapid pace.

West Vigo athletic director Mike Miller cautioned Tuesday that Brown County is already doubtful about making the trip across the state for a game Wednesday, and the Vikings have a boys game at home Thursday night. So if the West Vigo Sectional can’t be played Wednesday, its schedule would be Friday, Saturday and Monday.
