The wintry weather is making it extremely hard for area high schools to get games in. Almost every scheduled high school basketball game since January 29 has been postponed due to the inclement weather and the eight athletic directors of the Jefferson District met on Tuesday to come up with a plan going forward.
The decision is to cancel the remainder of the regular season and begin the district tournaments on Saturday. Every team had at least two regular season games remaining, but that season will be considered complete. The upcoming tournaments will be seeded based on the current standings, with the Charlottesville boys and Fluvanna girls earning the top seeds in the respective playoffs. The tournaments tip off on Saturday. Below are the match ups for the opening rounds.
