Weather Alters CIAC Track & Boys Tennis Schedules

CHESHIRE, Conn. – The weather forecast of likely thunderstorms has caused schedule changes for CIAC Outdoor Track & Field and Boys Tennis Tournaments.

The boys tennis divisional championship matches scheduled to continue today have been postponed until Wednesday beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the same sites. As a result of the change competition in the Boys Tennis State Open will begin at Sunday instead of Saturday with play beginning at noon.

The Class L and Class M Outdoor Track & Field Championships scheduled for today have been postponed. The updated Outdoor Track & Field Championship schedule is as follows:
Class M – Wednesday, May 29, New Britain (Veteran’s Stad.) – 10 a.m. field events; 10:30 track events.

CIAC recognizes the challenges of a morning competition time for athletes, parents, coaches, and schools however the weather forecast along with the need to work with timing systems, officials, sites, and within the calendar made this schedule the best alternative.

Decisions on schedule changes for individual games in other CIAC tournaments are made by the host site in consultation with the visitors, and all tournament schedule changes can be found on tournamentcentral.ciacsports.com or CIACmobile.com once they have been submitted to CIAC.
