Commissioner Jerome Singleton sent out the following letter to superintendents, principals and coaches:

"Greetings,

I trust that this correspondence greets you with a great winter sports season.  As we draw this sports season to a close, inclement weather has created a need for changes to the end of season contests and/or play-offs.

Due to the forecast of severe weather in our state (snow and/or ice accumulation) for the remainder of this week, the following adjustments will be made to the winter sports season.

The central site state finals at Dreher High School, schedule for Saturday, February 15th have been canceled.

The participating teams in each classification are to agree to a suitable date and neutral site for the finals. This may differ for each classification.
