Foul weather alters basketball schedule
Heavy snow east of the Cascades and the prospect for more has led to the postponement of more than a dozen prep basketball games this weekend.
The entire Southern Cascade League and Skyline A League schedules for Friday were wiped out, and today's contests are in doubt too.
Two Skyline Conference boys games and one girls contest were scrubbed Friday and more could be postponed today.
In the Southern Oregon Conference, one boys and one girls game were postponed.
Klamath Union's girls are scheduled to travel to Roseburg for a — p.m. makeup today, while the boys are set for 7 p.m. in Klamath Falls. But Klamath Union athletic director Barry Gottula wasn't optimistic the contests would be played.
We've had a foot of snow fall here since midnight, Gottula said late Friday afternoon. It doesn't look too favorable for (today) either, because in some areas the road is wet and slushy. It's supposed to freeze and if you get more snow on top of that ice, it can get real dangerous.
Skyline Conference games requiring travel over the Cascades will likely take a hit as well.
Prospect superintendent and girls basketball coach Don Alexander was due to host Paisley Friday and North Lake tonight.
The Paisley game was scrubbed early Friday, but the schools' athletic directors were to talk this morning about the North Lake contest.
