Cross country meets rescheduled, season extended

The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has rescheduled the remaining three divisional cross country championships and the State Open to Tuesday at Hammonasset State Park in Madison.
Also, teams in boys' and girls' soccer, field hockey and girls' volleyball will have until Saturday, an extra two days, to complete regular-season games to qualify for the state tournament.
The Class SS and S girls and the Class SS boys cross country meets were originally scheduled at Wickham Park but that facility is unavailable due to damage occurring during Saturday's snowstorm. The S girls will begin at noon, followed by the SS boys at 12:35 p.m. and the SS girls at 1:05. The boys State Open race will begin at 1:45 p.m., followed by the girls' race at 2:30.
The state tournament pairings for the other four sports will be released on Sunday.
"In the case of cross country and in soccer, volleyball and field hockey, we believe we have done everything possible to allow schools to complete their regular seasons while still holding fair and competitive tournaments," CIAC associate executive director Paul Hoey said in a statement. "We would hope that member schools whose facilities are available will help others whose facilities may not be so that as many games as possible can be completed by Saturday."
