Prep sports: No school Wednesday, no games Wednesday
Rowan-Salisbury Schools canceled school for Wednesday as the area deals with the lingering effects of Monday’s mix of snow and ice. With that comes the cancellation of all games and practices.
The South Piedmont and Central Carolina conference basketball tournaments were scheduled to start Wednesday. That has been pushed back.
The CCC is waiting to see what happens Wednesday with the N.C. High School Athletic Association’s decision on whether to stick with its plan to seed the basketball playoffs Saturday.
Normally, the conference basketball tournaments must be finished by Friday so the state association can seed the boys and girls basketball playoff brackets Saturday.
Que Tucker, NCHSAA deputy commissioner, sent an email Monday to athletic directors saying the association will make a decision by noon Wednesday about the seeding procedure for the basketball playoffs. The state will also choose whether the state wrestling tournament, held at Greensboro Coliseum, will go from Thursday to Saturday as scheduled.
The SPC is going one day at a time for the conference basketball tournament. The tentative plan is to cut the tournament field from eight teams to four. The Nos. 1 and 4 seeds in the boys and girls tournament will play a semifinal Thursday at Northwest Cabarrus and the Nos. 2 and 3 seeds play at Hickory Ridge.
In the boys tournament, No. 4 West Rowan plays No. 1 Cox Mill at Northwest Cabarrus and No. 2 Hickory Ridge battles No. 3 Concord at Hickory Ridge. In the girls tournament, No. 1 South Rowan meets No. 4 Carson at Northwest Cabarrus, and No. 2 East Rowan and No. 3 Hickory Ridge play at Hickory Ridge.
The girls games tip off at 5:30 p.m., and the boys at 7 p.m.
