This week’s major snow event is wreaking havoc with the high school winter sports schedules.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools are out Thursday and all athletic activities are canceled. That’s pushed games scheduled for Thursday to Friday.

CMS athletics director Sue Doran said if school is out Friday, those games would move to Saturday. Doran also said games could get pushed to Monday if conditions don’t improve.

CMS conference tournaments are scheduled to begin Monday, but if regular-season games are pushed back, the conference tournament schedule likely would be altered.

Two local conference tournaments also are going on this week. The Metrolina Athletic Conference tournament began Monday and was scheduled to continue Friday at Covenant Day. That tournament was canceled Wednesday. The Southern Piedmont Athletic Association semifinals are scheduled at United Faith in southeast Charlotte.

A SPAA official told the Observer that if semifinals cannot be played Friday, the semifinals and championship games would be Saturday at United Faith.

The private school state playoffs will begin next week and the playoff seeding meeting will be Sunday.

• Wrestling regional tournaments also are expected to begin Friday, including the 4A West at Hough High.

With the possibility that some areas might not be clear by Friday, the executive committee of the board of directors of the North Carolina High School Athletic Association held a conference call Tuesday and approved changes to aid schools in scheduling changes.

The NCHSAA, which frowns on Sunday events, will allow wrestling regionals to finish Sunday, but it is asking schools to make “every effort to avoid Sunday competition.”

On Sunday, weigh-ins could not occur before noon and wrestling could not begin until 1 p.m.

• In basketball, the NCHSAA will allow schools to play four games next week, with Friday being considered the “non-school” play date under the NCHSAA scheduling policies. Schools cannot play Saturday, but the extra playing date will allow schools to, for instance, make up a final regular-season game from this week and handle a three-game conference tournament next week.

The NCHSAA state playoff basketball seeding will be done Saturday, Feb. 22, and all qualifiers must be submitted by member schools by 6 a.m. that day.
