Cooperstown athletic director Monica Wolfe said all of the Hawkeyes events scheduled for today were still on as of Thursday night.
The Cooperstown girls basketball team is scheduled to host Beaver River in a Section Three Class C Tournament opener at 6 p.m. The Hawkeyes also are set to visit Little Falls for a 7 p.m. Section Three Class C Tournament first-round boys basketball game today. Additionally, Cooperstown’s boys swimming team is supposed to compete in the Section Three Class C Championships at New Hartford at 5:30 p.m. today.
“Right now, everything’s still on,” Wolfe said, adding that the only contingency plan in place is for the swimming championships, which would move to Saturday.
Wolfe also said admission for the sectional basketball games will be $3 per person.
Saturday will be a busy day for local high school teams regardless.
Oneonta State will host a basketball quadruple-header starting at 2 p.m. Saturday, when Bainbridge-Guilford plays unbeaten Harpursville in the Midstate Athletic Conference girls championship game. Unatego and Unadilla Valley will follow at 4 p.m. in the MAC boys final.
The Tri-Valley League will take center stage at O-State’s Dewar Arena starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, when unbeaten Franklin meets Milford for the girls basketball title. Milford’s boys also will play an undefeated team for the T-V boys championship as the Wildcats face Edmeston at 8 p.m. Saturday.
The Tri-Valley League will recognize its basketball All-Stars at halftime of each title game. The T-V also will honor its 2014 Hall of Fame inductees between the girls and boys crossovers. The Class of 2014 features Mack Culpepper (Franklin, Schenevus, Morris); Sue (Dubben) Hugick (Worcester); Jordan Jaquay (Cherry Valley-Springfield); and Eric Haight (Franklin).
Admission to the T-V title games are $5 for general admission and $3 for senior citizens. Children ages 10-and-younger will be admitted free.
