Stormy day for schools’ schedules

Campbell High School athletic director John Patterson spent most of his professional career in South Carolina. He remembered the time it snowed. He went out and took pictures of the snow on palm trees and how it turned the football field white for a few hours.

Campbell High School athletic director John Patterson spent most of his professional career in South Carolina. He remembered the time it snowed. He went out and took pictures of the snow on palm trees and how it turned the football field white for a few hours.

Wednesday was the kind of day athletic directors dread. There was just enough snow, hardly a storm at a few inches, but enough to make traveling sketchy, especially on back roads, like the ones surrounding Souhegan High School in Amherst.

Only one of the 18 area events scheduled for Wednesday was still on as of Wednesday afternoon, a hockey game between Nashua South and Salem.

“It’s New England,’’ said Salem athletic director Dave Rozumek, “You have to deal with a little snow.’’

Not all events need to be made up.

A lot of wrestling matches were moved to Thursday.

Hockey games are perhaps the toughest game to reschedule.
