Boys sectionals ppd., schedules reshuffled
Monday's snow forced postponement of a few boys basketball sectional games involving Kanawha Valley teams, and in some cases prompted a reshuffling of games on down the line.
The Class AAA Region 3 Section 1 game pitting Ripley at Riverside was called off Monday and reset for 7 p.m. Tuesday. The winner takes visits top seed South Charleston Wednesday.
In AAA Region 4 Section 1, Nitro at St. Albans was postponed Monday, but could not be rescheduled for Tuesday because the Red Dragons girls host Cabell Midland in the Region 4 co-finals that night.
Thus, Nitro at St. Albans boys was moved to Wednesday, and both of the sectional semifinals are now set for Thursday -- the SA-Nitro winner at Hurricane and Point Pleasant at Winfield. The sectional finals were pushed back to Saturday.
In Class A Region 4 Section 2, the play-in game with Hannan at Wahama was delayed until Tuesday, which held up the completion of the sectional.
A semifinal doubleheader at Cabell Midland originally set for Tuesday will now be held Thursday -- St. Joseph against the Wahama-Hannan winner and Charleston Catholic vs. Buffalo. The finals are set for Friday at Midland.
