Due to the weather, the girls basketball sectional at Southmont was postponed Tuesday. Crawfordsville and Southmont scheduled for 6 p.m. and Benton Central and Greencastle scheduled for 7:30 p.m. have been rescheduled for Thursday evening at the same times.
The games will not be played Wednesday due to bitter cold temperatures canceling schools throughout the area.
