Sectionals delayed due to Sandy

Niagara Gazette — Hurricane Sandy is battering the East Coast, and her effects are being felt in the world of Western New York high school sports.

All of Monday's Section VI sporting events were cancelled, and more games could be lost as the storm moves into the area today.

All boys soccer for Monday and today has been cancelled. Niagara-Wheatfield, the No. 5 seed in Class AA, had it's semifinal match against No. 1 Clarence moved to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hamburg.

The Division II boys volleyball qualifying round, set to begin Monday, was cancelled. Most games, like No. 20 East Aurora at No. 13 Niagara-Wheatfield, were moved to today at 6 p.m. No. 14 Starpoint, set to host No. 19 West Seneca East, had its match moved to Wednesday due to the West Seneca Central School District canceling classes today.

The Spartans' girls volleyball team, ranked No. 2 in Class B-1, was also set to host the No. 7 Trojans in today's quarterfinals. That match was also moved to Wednesday.

The Lancaster and Cheektowaga districts also cancelled class today, which should effect some local teams. The Niagara Falls girls volleyball team, ranked fifth, was scheduled to play at No. 4 Lancaster in today's Class AA Quarterfinals. The Lew-Port team, No. 5 in Class B-1, was supposed to play at No. 4 Cheektowaga. Neither game had been cancelled as of 10 p.m. Monday, though the school cancelations put their statuses in doubt.
