Miami High School’s homecoming game tonight with Coffeyville, Kan., has been cancelled because of the weather.
Athletic director Rick Woods said the games will not be made up.
The decision came early Thursday afternoon before the nasty weather rolled in.
Some areas of the state were getting sleet and freezing rain, prompting some schools to shut down early. OSU’s Stillwater campus shut down at 1 p.m. Thursday.
Homecoming now will be held Friday, Feb. 12, when MHS hosts Locust Grove.
That originally was to have been Senior Night, but that event has now been pushed back to Saturday, Feb. 13, when Miami hosts Jay in a make-up game.
The Jay games, as well as a Verdigris Valley Conference date with Grove, were postponed from earlier in the month by the first go-round with wintry weather.
Miami will play three home games next week: Neosho, Mo., on Tuesday, Wagoner next Friday and Grove on Feb. 6.
Miami’s girls have won three of their last four games after winning just once in the first nine starts.
They coasted to a 58-43 victory over Pryor on Tuesday, their third win over the Tigerettes in the last four meetings.
Three players scored in double figures for Miami, topped by Haiden Rowland with 14. Bekah Stewart and Ashlynn Waltz added 13 and 11, respectively.
Miami’s boys suffered an 11th straight loss Tuesday night, falling to Pryor 43-31.
The 31 points were a season-low for the Wardogs, who were blanked in the first quarter and who managed only six points in the first half.
Casey Hunter was MHS’ scoring leader with 16 points. He got 14 of that in the second half and 10 in the third period.
Afton will not play its games at Oaks tonight, Afton superintendent Randy Gardner said mid-afternoon on Thursday.
Welch is scheduled to play at Quapaw while Wyandotte hosts Grove in other games tonight.
The Welch-Quapaw games will go on — as long as both schools are in session, according to Welch High School principal Bruce Chrz.
Wyandotte superintendent Troy Gray said a decision on playing would be made sometime today, hinging on whether school was in or not.
“Our policy is if we don’t have school, then we won’t play,” Gray said.
