LITTLE ROCK, AR (News release) – Because of winter weather which is expected to cover the state with either snow or ice today, the Arkansas Activities Association (AAA) has postponed Wednesday’s state tournament play in all classes (7A, 6A, 5A, 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A).

The postponement will push the semifinal round in each classification to Sunday, and will keep the State Finals which are scheduled for March 12-14 at Hot Springs’ Bank of the Ozarks Arena on schedule.

“The decision was based on a safety issue,” said AAA executive director Lance Taylor. “We wanted to make sure that everyone could travel to our state locations without hazardous driving conditions. The weather conditions will not be favorable to travel on Wednesday, and warmer temperatures are expected for the rest of the week.”

The starting times will remain the same for all state tournament games. The semifinal rounds will be played on Sunday starting at 12:30 p.m.

The press conference for the State Finals will be held at the AAA office on Monday, March 9 at 11 a.m.
