Freezing rain forces postponements, cancellations of Huntsville-area sporting events

HUNTSVILLE — Weather conditions disrupted the local high school sports schedule again Tuesday.

Huntsville High School sports were rescheduled for today and next week due to wintry weather conditions that forced school cancellations districtwide.

The Hornets soccer game against Willis was rescheduled for today at 5 p.m., at Pritchett Field instead of the high school. The Lady Hornets will play at Willis today, junior varsity at 4:30 p.m., and varsity at 6:30 p.m.

“We take a look at travel and field conditions and we also have to discuss with the other school,” Huntsville girls athletic director Marcus Evans said.

“The (Willis) situation was the field condition and we also felt like travel was a concern.”

Huntsville’s varsity baseball team will play at Bryan Rudder on Thursday at 5 p.m., while the junior varsity game was rescheduled to next Wednesday.

“Willis was out of school as well and so they weren’t allowed to travel,” Huntsville boys athletic director Rodney Southern said. “We’re going to play the soccer game tomorrow at Pritchett Field because we’ll have our freshmen and junior varsity track meet going at the high school.”

New Waverly’s softball team will also reschedule Tuesday’s home game for today at 4:30 p.m. The Bulldogs baseball team will travel to Hearne for a game at 6 p.m.

Alpha Omega Academy’s baseball game against Logos Prep and softball contest at Orange Christian were both canceled.
