BUCKHANNON — Local sports came to a slight pause this week as both Buckhannon- Upshur Middle School and High School, as well as West Virginia Wesleyan College saw cancellations announced.
With school being cancelled, the school sanctioned events were also called off. This included the boy’s JV and varsity teams’ matchup against North Marion this past Wednesday, January 5 along with their game against Grafton Friday, January 7.
Although WVWC saw the men’s basketball team proceed with business-as-usual, playing in both of their games this week, the women’s team ran into some issues. The Lady Bobcats’ saw their game against the University of Charleston, scheduled for this past Wednesday, canceled due to Golden Eagles’ team entering COVID-19 safety protocols.
Naturally, the student-athletes safety comes first. Health and weather permitting, local sports are set to resume according to schedule next week.
