Houston Schools

Inclement weather in the region led to postponements for a handful of Houston High School basketball games.

The Lady Tigers conference matchup with Ava last Thursday was pushed back a day due to the threat of poor weather. It was later canceled Friday morning due to a school function that involved several Ava players.

Athletic director Brent Hall announced Wednesday morning that the game will be played as part of a tripleheader Feb. 2 on Hoop Queen Night. Following the coronation at 5 p.m., the junior varsity boys will kick off the night with the varsity Lady Tigers and Tigers following.

The Tigers’ home game Tuesday night with Bourbon was postponed as poor traveling conditions lingered from snow Sunday and Monday that also dismissed classes. The game has been rescheduled for 6 p.m Saturday.

The Lady Tigers were also scheduled to play Tuesday night but were postponed. Their matchup with Couch in the Thayer Winter Classic will be played at 7:30 p.m. Friday.


Both the Lady Tigers and Tigers will be in tournament action in the coming days.
