An unexpected winter storm formed over the state this week, causing a number of athletic postponements on Thursday night.
Hebron’s two basketball teams were victims of this storm, seeing their district tournament games at Macon canceled due to Thursday ice and snow on the road.
The boys were scheduled to play Kemper Academy at 5 p.m., and the girls were slated to take on Calhoun Academy during the 7 o’clock match. Calhoun defeated Winona to play in the game against a Hebron girls club that had a bye early in the week.
