Miami High Schoolís 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.

Other weather casualties were Afton at Oaks, Welch at Quapaw and Grove at Wyandotte.

Also cancelled was the Pryor wrestling tournament. Miami was included in the tournament field.

Some areas of the state were getting sleet and freezing rain Thursday morning, prompting numerous schools to shut down early. OSUís Stillwater campus closed at 1 p.m. Thursday.

Miami's homecoming now will be 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.

Miamiís 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.

Miamiís 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 MHSí scoring leader with 16 points. He got 14 of that in the second half and 10 in the third period.
