Not this year, though.
The annual Chapmanville Christmas Tournament, scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday nights at the Chapmanville Regional High School gym, has been cancelled due to bad weather and power outages which have ravaged southern West Virginia, CRHS Athletics Director Danny Godby said this morning.
Last Friday night’s snowstorm dumped a foot or more on Logan County and left thousands without power. Thousands were still without power as of Tuesday morning.
Host Chapmanville was slated to play Sherman tonight and Man was set to take on Mount Hope. The Championship game and consolation games were going to be played on Wednesday night.
Chapmanville’s girls are 2-2 and are set to see action again on Dec. 30 at home against Tug Valley. Man’s girls are 2-0 and are slated to take part in the Belfry, Ky., holiday tournament Dec. 28-30.
Logan’s girls (0-4) had its game last Saturday against Wayne wiped out as well due to the bad weather. The Lady Cats are off until Jan. 2 when they host Wayne.
On the boys’ side, the Logan High School Wildcats, ranked No. 2 in the state in Class AAA, were not affected by the snow as LHS was not scheduled to play this week. Logan (1-1) hosts Lincoln County this Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. at Willie Akers Arena.
The Chapmanville boys had its home opener with Wayne last Friday night postponed due to the snow. The game will be made up Feb. 13. The Tigers (1-0) host the annual Bob Runyon Memorial Touranment next Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 28-29.
The Man High School boys (0-1) were scheduled to play at Westside last Friday but that game was snowed out. The Billies are slated to host Iaeger tonight but that contest is in doubt. Man also plays in the Chapmanville tourney next week. The host Tigers take on Wahama on Dec. 28 at 7 p.m. in the opener and Man faces Sherman.
