Friday’s winter storm and blustery conditions on Saturday forced widespread postponements of most district basketball tournaments across Eastern Washington and North Idaho. Only a select few games occurred as scheduled.

The District 7 2B tournament second-round games at West Valley HS were postponed until Monday. The District 7 1B games at Deer Park HS were also pushed because of travel difficulties. The boys bracket was moved to Monday and the girls will play on Tuesday.

The District 9 1B boys tournament was postponed in part. The Oakesdale vs. Prescott matchup was moved to Monday at 4:30 p.m., but the Pomeroy at Garfield-Palouse game was played as scheduled Saturday at 6 p.m.

The District 7 2B games at University HS went on as planned since the teams were already in the area on Friday night for the first-round games.

In Idaho, the girls 3A District 1 second-place game between Kellogg and Bonners Ferry at Timberlake HS was postponed until Monday at 6 p.m. The 5A State play-in game between Post Falls and Meridian at Grangeville HS was played as scheduled.

Idaho had several boys regular-season games postponed or canceled outright.

All wrestling on Saturday across the state was canceled by the WIAA on Friday.
