UNDATED (WTVB) - The latest arctic blast forced the cancellation of last night's high school basketball games for Coldwater and Bronson. Coldwater's girls and boys basketball games at Loy Norrix have been rescheduled for Monday, February 10, while Bronson's hoops twinbill against Mendon has been rescheduled for this Monday night.
Quincy's home games against Reading went on as scheduled, and it was a split of the twinbill that wrapped up Oriole Week. Quincy's boys posted a big 72-29 win against the Rangers to improve to 8-2 overall, 5-1 in the Big 8. Jimmy King led the scoring with 15 points, while Jake Rider had 11 and Nick Haberl 10. Rider, Haberl, and Logan Miller pulled down 7 rebounds apiece. The Oriole girls fell to Reading 43-15 to drop to 0-11 overall, 0-7 in the Big 8. Andrea Ferrin had 5 points, while Katie Spalding had 8 rebounds and Kayti Hawkins 7.
Union City was swept at Springport. The Spartans won the boys game 54-43; Darren Austin had 12 points to lead the Chargers, who drop to 3-6 overall, 2-4 in the Big 8. In the girls game, Union City's attempt to come back from a 20-point 3rd quarter deficit came just 3 points short as Springport held on for the 40-37 win. Rachel Wing had 12 points and 9 rebounds to pace the Chargers, who fall to 5-9 overall, 2-6 in the Big 8.
Today's high school sports schedule has been effectively scrubbed due to the weather, including Coldwater's appearance at the Bill Evans Wrestling Tournament at Battle Creek Central and gymnastics invitationals for Coldwater at Kenowa Hills and St. Johns.
