Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will move its final regular-season games to Monday, school officials announced Friday afternoon. The Monday games will be played so long as school is in session, system athletics director Sue Doran said.
Those games were originally scheduled for Thursday and Friday but were postponed by this week’s severe snowstorm. The local conference tournaments were scheduled to begin Monday. With the regular-season games moving, the CMS conference tournaments will begin Tuesday.
The inclement weather also forced delay of the N.C. 4A Western Regional wrestling tournament at Hough. That was supposed to start Friday. The event will begin Saturday at 2 p.m. The regionals will conclude Sunday. The 3A wrestling regional will start at North Gaston at 1 p.m. It will conclude with Sunday wrestling beginning at 3 p.m.
There is at least one other high school event Sunday, with Charlotte Country Day basketball visiting rival Charlotte Christian at 1 p.m.
