Mother nature has postponed several area high school sporting events for at least one day.
Because school has been called off in the Rapid City Area School District and in other Black Hills communities, no activities or sporting events will be held today.
The Rapid City Central at Rapid City Stevens wrestling match, scheduled for Thursday night, will be held Friday night at 7 p.m. at Carold Heier Gymnasium.
The Sturgis at Douglas girls' basketball game scheduled for Thursday night has been moved to Tuesday as part of the girls-boys doubleheader in Box Elder.
The Custer at Spearfish boys' and girls' basketball games scheduled for Thursday night have been moved to Saturday, with the girls' game beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the boys to follow.
Because of the uncertainty of the local schedule for Thursday, the Journal will not print a normal local schedule for the Scoreboard page.
