Posted

Most of the local high school varsity basketball games scheduled for today have been postponed due to the snow and the aftermath from Winter Storm Grayson that hit the area on Wednesday.

The games for Sumter School District high schools Sumter, Crestwood and Lakewood as well as Manning, Lee Central, Scott's Branch, Wilson Hall, Laurence Manning Academy Thomas Sumter Academy, Robert E. Lee Academy and Clarendon Hall were all postponed.

Sumter was scheduled to play its Region VI-5A opener against West Florence, with the varsity and junior varsity boys teams playing in Florence and the girls teams facing off in Sumter. The games have been rescheduled for Feb. 8.

Lakewood was scheduled to open its Region VI-4A schedule at Darlington, while Crestwood was traveling to Camden for a non-region matchup. Manning was playing host to Hanahan in its Region VII-3A opener.

Lee Central was scheduled to travel to Pageland to face Central in a Region IV-2A contest, Scott's Branch was to play host to Timmonsville, Wilson Hall was supposed to travel to Lexington to take on Northside Christian, LMA was traveling to Charleston to face Porter-Gaud, TSA was to travel to Lake City to take on Carolina Academy, REL was to play host to Calhoun Academy and Clarendon Hall was playing host to Holly Hill.

Scott's Branch athletic director Wayne Farmer said his school's home game against Clarendon County rival Manning scheduled for Saturday is likely to be postponed as well.

The Sumter Item was unable to find out whether East Clarendon will play host to Lamar today.
