An expected winter storm has already wiped out a traditional county sporting event.
Saturday's South Oldham High School Dragon Invitational wrestling event has been canceled, South athletics director Mitchell Irvin announced Friday morning.
"Unfortunately, with the incoming overnight winter storm tonight with a prediction of 1-3 inches and Blizzard conditions from 3 a.m. until 10 a.m. tomorrow we are going to CANCEL the 2014 SOHS Dragon Invitational Tournament scheduled for Saturday, January 25," Irvin wrote in an email.
North Oldham, Oldham County and South were all scheduled to participate.
Schools who paid their $200 entry fee can either have their money refunded or can keep it as payment to hold their spot in the 2015 SOHS Dragon Invitational, scheduled for next Jan. 24.
"Thanks for your understanding," Irvin wrote. "I think it is best to make this decision today based on what we know and those schools already stating they cannot come if it occurs than waiting to 5 a.m. in the morning to make the call."
