Weather strikes again for Hornet athletics

HUNTSVILLE — For the second time since last Friday, Huntsville athletic events have been canceled or postponed due to inclement weather conditions expected in the Walker County area Tuesday.

The Huntsville Independent School District announced Monday that school would be canceled today and all district sporting events would be either canceled or rescheduled.

Huntsville’s basketball and soccer teams were all slated to play on Tuesday.

The girls basketball team was set to host Waller, while the boys traveled to Waller. Huntsville’s boys soccer team was scheduled to host Bryan Rudder and the Lady Hornets were supposed to travel to Brenham.

Both basketball games were rescheduled to Wednesday and the soccer games have also been postponed.

High school sports were also shut down in Huntsville on Friday. There was competition scheduled, but to take precaution, the district suspended all athletic activity due to the wintry weather conditions.

 Weather reports showed the Walker County area got between 3 and 4 inches of snow. City and county emergency crews worked overnight to sand roads.

The Hornet boys basketball team was supposed to host Magnolia West on Friday night. The varsity game was rescheduled to Saturday at 2 p.m.

Huntsville was led to a 53-49 win by Ricko Bennett’s 11 points.

Huntsille’s boys soccer team suffered its first loss of the season over the weekend in the Brenham Select Showcase, but rebounded with a win to split two games Saturday.

Waller beat Huntsville 2-1 in the opening matchup, then the Hornets bounced back against Brazosport with a 3-2 win.

The Lady Hornets soccer competition scheduled for Friday was canceled completely. The Lady Hornets if the weather permitted would have hosted Tomball Memorial in a non-district bout.

The Lady Hornets soccer team begins district play Feb. 7 against Montgomery.
