At a tournament breakfast last week, Washington County Athletic Director Josh Kite put in place a back up plan in case of another round of inclement weather.
“It’s been a disaster this year,” Kite said. “If we get more snow, we’ll push everything back a day and we’ll finish on Wednesday.”
Immediately following the tournament breakfast, coaches for the Big Eight Conference boys’ and girls’ teams held meetings to select players to the All-Conference teams.
