Snow disrupts IAAM tournaments

February 08, 2010

The big snow arrived at just the wrong time for the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland - at tournament time. Sunday night, IAAM officials announced changes to the schedules for basketball and swimming. Indoor soccer tournament details will come later.

In basketball, the B and C conferences are to play their first-round games Wednesday. The quarterfinals in the A, B and C conferences will go Thursday, with the semifinals Saturday. The title games, originally scheduled for Sunday at Stevenson, will be moved to next Monday at a site yet to be determined. Officials will make every effort to put all three games at the same site.

The swimming championships have been rescheduled for Sunday at UMBC at 9 a.m. That meet was originally scheduled for Super Bowl Sunday and then moved to Tuesday.

One of the reasons these events were moved so far ahead was to give athletes time to practice before they have to compete again. All public schools in the Baltimore area will be closed today. Additional changes likely will be necessary with more snow predicted for Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Stay tuned.
