State Tournament Dates Changed Due to Storm Damage

Many schools are still closed, forcing the CIAC to change tournament schedules.

The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference has made adjustments to its state tournament schedules and qualification dates in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

Due to many member schools still being closed due to damage from the storm, the CIAC has created a revised schedule. "The decision came after a thorough review of the calendar, discussion with tournament directors, and communication with potential host sites," Joel Cookson, Director of Media and Sports Information for the CIAC, said in a news release Wednesday.

Under the revised schedule, the final day for regular season games to count toward state tournament consideration will be Tuesday, Nov. 6. Teams will have the option to play games on Sunday, Nov. 4, if the games are played after 12:30 p.m.

State tournament competition will begin Thursday, Nov. 8. Championship contests for volleyball and field hockey will be played the weekend of Nov. 16-17, while finals for boys and girls soccer will be played the weekend of Nov. 23-24.

In cross country, the State Open meet, which had been scheduled for Friday, Nov. 2 at Wickham Park in Manchester, has been moved to Sunday, Nov. 4. The girls swimming and diving trials and finals for Class LL and S have also been changed from their originally scheduled date of Wednesday, Nov. 7.
