The slushy mess on the roads has turned the local tournament schedules into a confusing mess.
Some teams are keeping their Wednesday schedules, including the Lummi Nation boys and girls in Class 1B Tri-District 1/2/3; the Meridian boys and girls, the Lynden Christian boys and girls, and the Nooksack Valley girls in 1A District 1; and the Ferndale girls in 3A District 1.
But the Bellingham boys and girls, the Lynden boys and girls, and the Sehome boys in Class 2A District 1/2, and the Squalicum boys in 3A District 1 are postponing Wednesday’s games to Thursday.
