Storm alters playoff schedule

March 03, 1994|By Katherine Dunn

Snow and ice continued to play havoc with the basketball season, forcing the postponement of yesterday's girls regional playoff games.

With classes canceled yesterday in Howard County as well as most of the rest of the metro area, the girls regional semifinal games are scheduled to be made up today. However, the times of some games have had to be changed to accommodate the boys games already scheduled.

Tonight, Mount Hebron and Glenelg, where both girls and boys teams are second seeds, will play host to doubleheaders.

The No. 6-ranked Mount Hebron girls meet sixth seed Howard at 5:30 in their Class 3A East semifinal. At 7:30, the No. 15 Viking boys play third seed Poly.

L The girls 3A East championship is set for tomorrow at 7 p.m.

at the higher seed. Tonight's other semifinal is an all-Baltimore City matchup pitting No. 16 and top seed Poly against fourth seed Carver.

At Glenelg, tonight's Class 2A South semifinals will feature the No. 18 and second seed Gladiators girls against sixth seed Potomac at 5:15. The boys, also seeded second, play another sixth-seeded Prince George's County team, Surrattsville, at 7.

In tonight's other Class 2A South girls semifinal, No. 1 and top seed Hammond plays host to fourth seed Fairmont Heights of Prince George's County at 7.

The Class 2A South championship is scheduled to be played Saturday at 2 p.m. at the home of the higher seed. If the semifinal should be postponed until tomorrow night at 7, the higher seed would play host to the title game Saturday at 5.

The Class 1A South region could be the most affected by the weather because Frederick County schools are the sites for both semifinals. With heavier snow expected there, fourth seed Wilde Lake might have to wait a while for its game.

The Wildecats are scheduled to head to top seed Catoctin for a 5 p.m. game today. The title game is set for tomorrow at 5 p.m. at the higher seed. However, another postponement would force the semifinals to tomorrow and the title game to Saturday at a time to be determined.

If the Wildecats upset Catoctin, they would travel to meet the winner of the other semifinal between second seed Brunswick, also of Frederick County, and third seed Central of Prince George's County.
