AURORA | Already off to an uneven start due to weather, spring prep sports teams around the city will have to adjust to the loss of yet another day because of snow.
With snow and blizzard conditions forecast for Wednesday into Thursday, a day of practices and competition were scrubbed when the Aurora Public Schools, Cherry Creek School and Regis Jesuit all postponed or canceled afterschool activities.
Among the casualties of the postponements was a boys lacrosse showdown between top-ranked Cherry Creek and upstart Grandview, which had risen to the No. 3 spot in the latest CHSAANow.com rankings. The Bruins and Wolves — fresh off a historic victory over Arapahoe — will now have to wait to play until 6 p.m. April 25 at Legacy Stadium.
The snow and postponements came short after it was 80 degrees on Tuesday, when a whopping 31 games, meets or matches were contested.
No schools were closed on Thursday, though APS had an hour late start, Cherry Creek Schools went with a 1 1/2-hour late start for high schools and Regis Jesuit had a two-hour late start.
Boys swim meets between Douglas County and Regis Jesuit (in the Raiders’ bubble at 4 p.m.) and 5 p.m. Centennial League swimming duals between Overland and Grandview and Smoky Hill and Cherry Creek will be contested, while most other contests are rescheduled.
