Storm forces cancellations, changes to sports schedule

mbfoot-riceHurricane Joaquin may be far out to sea but the fallout from the 1,000-year flood continues to send ripples through the local sports calendar.

Three high school football games have seen date and venue changes with the possibility of more to come, and the SCHSL Swimming Championships have been postponed a full week to Saturday, Oct. 17. Outdoor sports like cross country, golf and tennis continue to scramble their schedules, and a youth soccer tournament has been forced to cancel some of its games.

Friday night’s Region 6-4A opener between West Florence and Conway has been moved a few miles down Highway 501 from The Backyard to Brooks Stadium on the Coastal Carolina University campus. Kickoff is still at 7:30 p.m. Myrtle Beach at Lake City and North Myrtle Beach at Georgetown were switched to noon Saturday, although the Chiefs and Bulldogs have since pushed their game back to an undetermined date. St. James’ game at Wilson is set for Saturday at 2 p.m.

The City of Myrtle Beach has closed fields at Market Common that were scheduled to be used for the Great Carolina Shootout youth soccer tournament, forcing the cancellation of the Under-11 and Under-12 age divisions. Registered teams will receive refunds and the tournament and town will lose out on a large number of visiting players and their families.

The fifth annual Historic Georgetown Bridge2Bridge Run, which features a half marathon, 12k and 5k, has been rescheduled for November 14. The race was originally slated to be run Saturday, but last weekend’s historic storm, which dumped more than 20 inches of rain on Georgetown, necessitated the change. Runners can register for the race at www.Bridge2BridgeRun.com.

More cancellations, postponements and venue changes are expected in the coming days. heck back here for more information.
