Hurricane Sandy Washes Out Two Days Of Soccer And Field Hockey Playoffs

All Montgomery County public school soccer and field hockey playoff games scheduled for Monday and Tuesday have been postponed in anticipation of the effects of hurricane Sandy, school officials announced Sunday.

Some schools have already tentatively rescheduled regional quarterfinal soccer games and regional semifinal field hockey games for Wednesday. The weather forecast for Wednesday is currently favorable, but it is not yet known what condition playing fields will be in after the two days of heavy rain that are expected.

The state volleyball playoff draw will take place Monday as previously scheduled, according to the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association.

“We still plan to conduct the Volleyball draw at 12 noon on Monday via phone even if it cannot take place in our office,” the MPSSAA said in a release posted on their website. “Team records for all 16 regions have already been gathered and we are ready to go. It is our intent to post the brackets, if the elements allow, as soon as we can after the draw is completed and everything is double-checked.”

First round regional games for the state volleyball tournament are scheduled to begin Thursday.
