Five area games were postponed Thursday when a winter storm dumped more than five inches of snow in the area.
Schools in nearly every county in North Central West Virginia were closed, forcing the cancellation of several area games.
Among those was South Harrison (6-5) at Robert C. Byrd (0-10).
The stop in play couldn't have come at worst time for the Hawks, who were riding a three-game winning streak.
The Hawks next game is scheduled for Tuesday when it plays host to a struggling Preston team.
However, South Harrison coach Joe Johnson said the break in action gives him another day to rest guard Casey Davisson, who is out with a sprained ankle.
"I think it would've definitely helped us to get this game in," Johnson said.
"We would've rather of played this game, but it helps us rest Casey another day."
Davisson suffered the injury in the first half of the Liberty game, and missed the entire Philip Barbour game.
Johnson said he plans on practicing his team today and possibly bring them in Saturday for a light practice.
"Normally with a situation like this, it's automatic that all games are (postponed)," Johnson said. "As far as practice goes, it's the principal's discretion as to whether we can practice or not.
"I've never had practice on a snow-day, but I don't like going this many days without a ball in their hands.
"We'll try to practice Friday and then maybe get them in on Saturday for a shoot around."
Overall, it was a light schedule for most of the area teams, as semester exams were being taken for most students this week.
Another team suffering through a key in injury was also scheduled to play Thursday.
Grafton (6-5), which is playing without starting point guard Heather McDaniel, was scheduled to play host to Liberty (2-10).
McDaniel broke the ring finger on her right hand, and has missed the Bearcats' last three games. McDaniel is the team's second leading scorer at 12 points per game and is second on the team in 3-point field goals with nine.
During her absence, Grafton struggled in a win over Liberty and fell to Tucker County Tuesday night.
Other games postponed in the area Thursday were: Tucker County at Philip Barbour, Doddridge County at Ravenswood and Preston at North Marion.
All games will be made up at a date to be determined later.
Weather providing, a full slate of boys games is set for tonight, while Robert C. Byrd's wrestling team was scheduled to travel to Parkersburg for a match.
