MECHANICSBURG- The PIAA announced it is changing the schedules for Thursday’s boys and girls basketball playoff games because of all the snow in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania.

PIAA officials have decided to postpone 16 games to Friday. Four games will remain on Thursday but have a new start time.  Many of these games had already been postponed from earlier this week.

There was concern from many school districts how they were going to get their teams to playoff sites. Most of those districts have been closed since the storm dumped two feet in much of the area.

    It comes as no surprise that the superintendents of most school districts in our area voiced their concerns for the safety of their players and families EXCEPT for the superintendent of our diocesan schools.
