Several area events called off

Thursday, January 23, 2003

The snowy, chilly conditions which have struck mid-Missouri this week have forced the postponement of a number of local athletic events.

The only varsity-level high school basketball games scheduled for today were at Malta Bend, a CAC doubleheader against Madison which has been moved to Feb. 17.

The Marshall wrestling team's varsity-junior varsity home contest, scheduled for Thursday evening, with Kearney was also called off.

The Missouri Valley College men's wrestling squad was recalled Wednesday while on the road to St. Charles to take on top-ranked Lindenwood. The Vikings were also to take on Truman State today in Volney Ashford Gymnasium, but that match was previously postponed until Feb. 12 -- part of a twinbill with Dana (Neb.) -- due to illness on the Bulldogs' team.

Valley's Heart of America Conference basketball games today at Graceland are expected to be played.
