Winter weather continued to force heavy changes to area high school basketball and wrestling schedules Thursday.

Many school systems, including Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, canceled classes Friday and stopped all athletic activities. CMS and Gaston County Schools officials will each meet Friday morning to determine if games moved from Thursday and Friday will be played Saturday. Many area schools have already moved games to Saturday or Monday.

Basketball conference tournaments are scheduled to start Monday. At least one area conference has canceled its tournament next week to allow teams to get in makeup games. Most CMS schools need to make up one game.

Two private school conferences, the Southern Piedmont Athletic Association and the Metrolina Athletic Conference, canceled their tournaments, which had begun earlier this week. The SPAA was set to conclude Friday at United Faith, the MAC Friday at Covenant Day.

The N.C. Independent Schools state tournament begins Tuesday. The seeding meeting is Sunday.

• In wrestling, the N.C. 2A Western regional at Black Mountain Owen, the 3A Western regional at North Gaston and 4A Western regionals at Hough have been rescheduled to start Saturday. The N.C. High School Athletic Association gave organizers permission to hold the second day of action Sunday, beginning at noon. CMS officials will determine Friday when to hold the second day of the 4A regional at Hough.

The NCISAA state wrestling finals begin Friday at High Point Wesleyan, with weigh-ins at 4 p.m. Wrestling begins at 6 p.m. with the first and second rounds. The event will continue with Saturday’s semifinals beginning at 9 a.m.
