Tuesday’s snow leaves ADs scrambling
Jeff Linville firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuesday’s snowfall postponed sports for both that day and today.
With the regular seasons winding down, athletic directors are left scrambling to find an open slot.
Mount Airy’s wrestling team will travel to Walkertown on Thursday to make up Tuesday’s match before the Northwest Conference Tournament at Walkertown on Saturday.
The Bears’ basketball teams had games scheduled with Atkins on Tuesday and Surry Central on Wednesday.
The Bears already were scheduled to play Walkertown on Tuesday and West Stokes on Wednesday.
The West Stokes games may be canceled to allow Mount Airy to get in conference games with Atkins instead. And the Surry Central games haven’t been decided yet.
North Surry had basketball games scheduled with Forbush on Tuesday and East Surry today.
The Greyhounds moved Forbush to Thursday, with hopes that school will be back in session by then. The Hounds will host for basketball, while the wrestling team will travel to East Bend.
The North Surry/East Surry games will be Feb. 12 in Pilot Mountain.
East Surry had basketball and wrestling with Bishop McGuinness Tuesday. The wrestling match at home was moved to Thursday, while basketball went to Feb. 13 in Kernersville.
On Friday, East Surry will host Mount Airy for basketball. Athletic director Randy Marion said he has been informed that TV station WXII has made the matchup its game of the week.
Also on Friday, the Cardinals will retire the soccer jersey of the late Jacob Pettitt between the JV boys game and the varsity girls game. Pettitt was a junior varsity soccer player who was critically injured in a car accident last year and later passed away.
The furniture and cabinetmaking class at Mount Airy High School wanted to do something nice for the family, said Marion. The students are donating $400 to the Pettitt family from proceeds raised from selling their wood creations.
Surry Central is still trying to figure out when to schedule everything, said athletic director Myles Wilmoth. The basketball teams were set to host West Stokes Tuesday. The teams can’t try to make up games on Saturday because Surry Central’s gym will be taken up by the Western Piedmont Conference wrestling tournament.
Because the 1A and 2A wrestling tournaments are this weekend, teams must try to squeeze in their final regular-season matches this week.
