Winter Weather Forces Second Postponement; All State Tournament Games to Start on Thursday
Because of winter weather which has left the state covered with either snow or ice throughout the week, the Arkansas Activities Association has postponed the opening round of ALL state tournament games with the official starting day now set for Thursday.
Originally, state tournament play was scheduled to start for Classes 6A, 5A, 3A, 2A and 1A on Tuesday and for 7A and 4A on Wednesday. On Monday the AAA postponed all scheduled games for Tuesday and moved the games to Wednesday. The AAA decided on Tuesday to delay the opening round one more day, stopping play on Wednesday.
If weather permits, Class 7A and 4A will play tournament games on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. The schools scheduled to advance to the State Finals will meet in the AAA office on Tuesday, March 11.
