NILES -- For the second week in a row, severe winter weather has put a halt to local high school sports events.
Last week, the Niles wrestling team was scheduled to host Dowagiac on Thursday night but that match was postponed due to the weather and rescheduled for Wednesday, Feb. 4.
Tuesday night, more events were put on hold because of snowfall and dangerous driving conditions.
The Niles basketball teams were scheduled to host Battle Creek Lakeview in a Big 16 interdivisional matchup, but those contests have been moved to Tuesday, Feb. 24.
Brandywine's basketball teams were set to host Bridgman Tuesday night in Lakeland Conference play, but those games will now be played on Friday, Feb. 13.
Finally, the No. 5-ranked Buchanan varsity basketball team, along with its junior varsity and freshmen teams, were scheduled to host Cassopolis in a Lakeland Conference showdown. Those games will now be played Wednesday, Feb. 11.
