I've spent more time watching the weather since New Year's Day than I do during a typical summer in anticipation of scheduling games and tournaments at the Field of Dreams. Apparently, that isn't going to change anytime soon. As I write this article, there is another storm brewing somewhere off the west coast that will be nicknamed Winter Storm Nika that could ruin the following schedule, but just in case it doesn't happen, here is the schedule for this week.
We begin with games on Monday unless Mother Nature says otherwise. The Lady Knights of Southwood travel to Pioneer for a non conference game. The Lady Apaches of Wabash host North Miami in a game that was postponed from Jan. 25. On Tuesday, the Wabash WebTV crew will bring you the TRC game between the Southwood Knights and the Wabash Apaches from Coolman Gym. Airtime will be about 7:30 p.m. with Rick Harness and Jim Landrum.
Wednesday, a TRC game that is a re-schedule from December, that was also a postponement from last week as the Lady Apaches of Wabash will host Rochester. Also, the Lady Norse will travel to Whitko for a TRC match up that was a postponement from Jan. 25. Wabash WebTV will be on hand at Manchester for the game between Rochester and the Squires. Join Rick and Tim Harness at about 7:30 p.m.
Thursday's match ups are tune-ups for the girl's sectional as the Lady Knights travel to Eastbrook, the Lady Squires are at Fairfield and Maconaquah will host the Lady Apaches.
The four Wabash County Boys teams highlight Friday night's action as all could have implications in the TRC as Southwood hosts Rochester, Tipp Valley will be at Wabash and Northfield hosts Manchester in a border battle. The Harness Boys will be on the air at about 7:30 p.m from the Land of the Norse on Wabash WebTV to bring you that match up.
On Saturday, all four boys teams will be in action again as Northfield travels to Ft. Wayne Canterbury, Manchester travels over to Peru and Southwood will be at Northwestern. The lone county home game is Wabash hosting Frontier. Expect more cancellations and changes as winter weather plays havoc with the athletic schedules. We will try to keep you up to date on those changes.
Join Wabash WebTV for exciting action of Indiana High School basketball. If you are at a game or cannot watch it live, an archive of the featured game is available on the website shortly after the completion of the games.
