Wednesday games postponed because of weather
High school sporting events across Union County were postponed on Wednesday due to the threat of inclement weather.
Severe thunderstorms with high winds rolled through the area, forcing schools to move events to a later date.
According to Union County athletic director Doug Jones, each school had the option of postponing events.
"The schools discussed it with each other and decided," said Jones. "They wanted to do it early enough to where people weren't already out on the roads."
Three basketball doubleheaders were postponed, including Forest Hills at Parkwood, Marvin Ridge at Porter Ridge and Pine Lake Prep at Union Academy.
The makeup dates of the basketball games were unavailable when the The E-J went to press.
There were also two wrestling matches postponed Wednesday, including Porter Ridge at Sun Valley and Marvin Ridge at Weddington. Both of those matches will be made up today starting at 6 p.m., according to Jones.
Weddington's boys carry a four-game winning streak into Friday's league game at Anson County.
The Warriors, who have moved into a three-way tie for first place, are led by junior wing Brandon Watts, who is averaging 12.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.8 blocks.
Four other Warriors average more than seven points a game, including sophomore Jordan Barber (8.7 ppg), sophomore Chris Trevisan (7.2 ppg) and junior Mason Ospechuk (7.1 ppg).
CHS boys now 17-1
Cuthbertson's boys are coming off an 80-51 home win over North Stanly on Tuesday, and have won eight straight to improve to 17-1.
Shelton Mitchell and Isaiah Cureton, the Cavs' top two scorers, did not dress out for the game because of nagging injuries.
