Tuesday's blizzard storm warning threw a wrench into the Hancock County Boys and Girls Basketball Tournament schedules. With several inches of snow due Wednesday, the JV tourney originally scheduled for Wednesday was postponed. A make-up date has not been announced. For now, the varsity tourney Thursday and freshman/C team tournament Friday are still on tap. "We'll take a wait-and-see approach to the varsity tourney," Greenfield-Central athletic director Kevin Horrigan said Tuesday evening. "If we get the snow we're supposed to get, we'll probably have to look at moving it back to next week."
One schedule being discussed among athletic directors, according to Horrigan, is to play the JV tourney Monday, Dec. 31, and split the varsity tourney into two days — Jan. 1 and Jan. 2 — or play the entire varsity tourney on Jan. 2. A final decision is expected by Wednesday evening.
