Harford County athletes, as well as a number of others around the state, were forced into a two-day break this week. The untimely and unscheduled break comes at a bad time with just a couple of weeks left in the regular season for boys and girls basketball teams and a little less for wrestlers and swimmers.

Tuesday’s postponement took care of a whole night of basketball play for both boys and girls teams. Harford Tech at Patterson Mill boys basketball was rescheduled for the Wednesday, but with that addtional postponement, the game is now set for Feb. 11.

The North East at North Harford boys game was in the same predicament, postponed twice. The game is now set for Feb. 6.

Aberdeen’s Tim Lindecamp, one-of-10 public school Athtletic Directors in Harford County, didn’t have it so bad. “It is always hard trying to reschedule. Lucky for me it was all within the UCBAC conference, the games I needed to reschedule,” Lindecamp said Wednesday. “These AD’s work great with each other. My games are all rescheduled.”
