Weather hinders area sports events

Jan. 14—The winter storms that went across the state of Iowa this past week wrecked most of the activities scheduled in the area.

Some of the events from Thursday took place as scheduled, but Newton's basketball games with Albia were postponed.

Newton's Little Hawkeye Conference basketball games against Norwalk scheduled for Jan. 9 were postponed to Jan. 22.

The Cardinal girls were scheduled to face Des Moines Hoover on Saturday and that game also was postponed. Newton was slated to host PCM on Monday, but that game has been postponed to Thursday. That will be varsity only with a tip off at 6 p.m.
