Anne Arundel County public schools athletic directors held their monthly meeting with Marlene Kelly, the coordinator of athletics, yesterday at Severna Park and came up with a few schedule revisions.

Yesterday's high school sports schedule was called off in the morning after the schools received a memo from the superintendent's office that there would be no games because of concern for the safety of the students in the sniper crisis.

Teams, however, were allowed to practice indoors.

The athletic directors' meeting lasted four hours and the following was decided:

County football games are on for tomorrow, but there will be no outdoor activities on Saturday.

The county field hockey championship between No. 7 Severna Park (10-1-2) and No. 10 South River (11-1) will be played at 7:15 tonight at North County.

"Yesterday's regularly scheduled game between South River and us for now will not be played unless the two have an open date next week after the state draw and agree to play it, " said Severna Park athletic director Wayne Mook.

"We hope that we can get back to playing without any more interruptions."

The County Golf Championship is set for 8 a.m. today at Eisenhower Golf Course in Crownsville and will be just 18 holes instead of the usual 36.

Rescheduled twice already, the Severna Park at Arundel girls and boys soccer games will be played tomorrow night at 5:15 and 7:15, respectively.

As for Tuesday's heavy schedule that was postponed due to the safety worries, the county hopes to play those games on Monday.

The other county champion- ship dates remain as scheduled. They are as follows:

Tuesday: Soccer at Southern-AA, boys at 5:15 p.m., girls at 7:15.

Oct. 24: Cheerleaders at South River, 7 p.m.

Oct. 25: Cross country at Arundel, 2 p.m.

Oct. 29: Volleyball at Meade, 7:15 p.m.
