MEDFORD, Ore. — Another last-minute change postponed a Medford sports event Tuesday night, with a rebound now planned for Wednesday.
Tuesday was supposed to be the opening day for the 31st annual Abby's Holiday Classic high school basketball tournament. That opening day was canceled due to the severe winter weather conditions and impacts on travel.
The Abby's Classic is an annual tournament involving a number of local basketball teams. The games canceled Tuesday included the Ashland, North Medford, and South Medford teams.
A new schedule has all three of those teams playing Wednesday and Thursday at South Medford High School. The updated schedule no longer included North Eugene.
Local sports statistician B.G. Gould says he can't recall a cancellation of this sort in the tournament's history.
Here is the schedule as it stood on Tuesday afternoon:
- 3:30 p.m. - South Medford vs. Roseburg
- 5 p.m. - North Medford vs. South Salem
- 6:30 p.m. - Forest Grove vs. Ashland
- 10:30 a.m. - South Salem vs. Roseburg
- 12 p.m. - South Medford vs. Forest Grove
- 1:30 p.m. - North Medford vs. Ashland
