Because of winter weather which has left the state covered with either snow or ice for most of the week, the Arkansas Activities Association has postponed the opening round of all state tournament games with the official starting day now set for Thursday.
Originally, state tournament play was scheduled to start for Classes 6A, 5A, 3A, 2A and 1A on Tuesday and for 7A and 4A on Wednesday. On Monday the AAA postponed all scheduled games for Tuesday and moved the games to Wednesday. AAA officials decided Tuesday to delay the opening round one more day, stopping play on Wednesday.
If weather permits, Class 7A and 4A will play tournament games on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. Tournament play for Class 6A, 5A, 3A, 2A and 1A will be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday.
