Scholastic postponements update


Old man winter sure is showing his cranky side today.

And what shaped up to be a busy, yet frigid Friday has turned into a head for shelter type of day.

What we know so far is that the girls hockey Federation championship game between Monsignor Martin and Williamsville slated for a 4:30 start at Northtown Center has been postponed. No word yet as to when the game will be made up.

That’s two years in a row now that the girls Fed final has been rescheduled due to weather closing school on game day.

The mother of all rivalry basketball games, Canisius at St. Joe’s, has been rescheduled for Monday at St. Joe’s. The varsity game tips off at 5 p.m. to conclude a tripleheader that begins with the Freshmen game at 2 p.m. followed by the JV game at 3:30.

Southtown rivals also had games postponed until Saturday. Frontier and Hamburg will meet in a nonleaguer at 1 p.m. at Hamburg. St. Francis and Bishop Timon-St. Jude will now meet at 4 p.m. Saturday at St. Francis.

Archbishop Walsh’s clash with St. Mary’s of Lancaster on Friday has been postponed. No makeup date has been announced.

Section VI Executive Director Timm Slade tweeted that Class Diving at Maryvale has been cancelled and there’s no makeup date.

If a school district canceled school Friday due to the weather that means that no after-school activities in most cases.

Saturday's schedule features Section VI State Wrestling Division I (at Lake Shore) and II (at Jamestown Community College) qualifiers  and Class Swimming championships at various locations. Follow the Buffalo News here at the Prep Talk blog to find out any last-minute changes to the schedule.
