District 2 has postponed all high school playoff games scheduled for Tuesday. This includes games in girls volleyball, as well as potential games in boys and girls soccer.

At this time, district semifinals and finals in boys and girls soccer will need to be rescheduled. Girls volleyball still has district semifinals and finals to complete. Most finals were slated to be played Wednesday or Thursday.

In Class 2A, the girls volleyball tournament has not yet started, meaning those schools will also need to complete quarterfinals.

Field hockey district championship games were assigned new dates last week. They remain slated for Thursday at Spartan Stadium.

In all, 24 Wyoming Valley Conference teams have been impacted by the delays caused by Hurricane Sandy. Updated brackets have not yet been released.

Both the King's field hockey and men's soccer teams have had their Freedom Conference Tournament semifinals delayed until Thursday due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy.

The third-seeded Monarchs men's soccer squad was scheduled to play at second-seeded Misericordia on Tuesday. This game will now be Thursday at 4 p.m. in Dallas.

The top-seeded King's field hockey team was slated to host fourth-seeded Delaware Valley on Wednesday. That game is now Thursday at 4 p.m. at McCarthy Stadium.

The Wilkes women's soccer and volleyball teams also had their semifinal games moved to Thursday.
