5-AAA Tourney postponed; Contingency Snow Plans In Place

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - by Larry Fleming

With the threat of ice and snow arriving in the area overnight, the District 5-AAA basketball tournament’s opening two-game schedule for Wednesday at East Hamilton Middle/High School has been postponed.

As of Tuesday night, Michael Stone, boys coach at East Hamilton, said administrators were anticipating schools being closed Wednesday and Thursday.

“If we lose both days, we’ll stack all those games on Friday,” Stone said, “and we’ll use both gyms.”

When East Hamilton hosted the Scenic City Showcase in January the past two years, games were going on simultaneously in both the middle school and high school gyms without any problem.

Should classes resume on Thursday, however, the two Wednesday games would be split up with one played Thursday and one on Friday. Both would start at 4:30 p.m.

If tournament starts Thursday

4:30 – McMinn County girls vs. East Hamilton

6 – Walker Valley girls vs. Soddy-Daisy

7:30 – Cleveland boys vs. East Hamilton

Friday

4:30 – Ooltewah boys vs. McMinn County

6 –  Cleveland girls vs. Ooltewah

7:30 – Walker Valley boys vs. Soddy-Daisy

If tournament starts on Friday

At Middle School Gym

6 – McMinn County girls vs. East Hamilton

7:30 – Walker Valley girls vs. Soddy-Daisy

At High School Gym

3 – Cleveland girls vs. Ooltewah

4:30 – Ooltewah boys vs. McMinn County

6 – Cleveland boys vs. East Hamilton

7:30 – Walker Valley vs. Soddy-Daisy

Four semifinal games are scheduled for Saturday (unless weather forces additional school closings). The girls consolation and championship games are set for Monday and the boys consolation and title games will be played Tuesday.
