Ice storm wipes out H.S. schedule

The Daily Star


Five high school basketball games were among the area high school sports schedule that was wiped out by an ice storm Monday.

Two of those games involved Gilbertsville-Mount Upton. The Raiders’ boys were to host Edmeston in a Tri-Valley League game and G-MU’s girls were supposed to play Oxford in the consolation game of the Harpursville Tournament. G-MU athletic director Jim Johnson said those games have not yet been rescheduled.

One game will be made up today _ Davenport’s Delaware League girls basketball game against visiting Stamford. Wildcats coach Ray Preston is inching closer to New York state’s record for all-time victories in girls basketball.

Preston, in his 34th season, has coached Davenport to 612 wins, including an 8-2 record this season. The state record is held by former Red Hook coach John Kuhn, who retired in 2010 with 619 triumphs.

Another Delaware League girls game scheduled for Monday _ Gilboa at Downsville _ was moved to 2 p.m. Feb. 9.

Jefferson’s DL girls basketball game at Andes also was postponed. No new date was reported.
