The threat of a severe winter storm caused the postponement of Tuesday’s sports slate, including the county rivalry game between Fair Haven and Mill River in boys basketball.
That game was rescheduled for Wednesday at Mill River.
Also reset for Wednesday was Tuesday’s Hartford-at-Springfield boys game.
Green Mountain’s boys game at West Rutland was reset for Saturday and the Poultney-Granville (N.Y.) girls game was rescheduled for Friday.
Another victim of the weather was Tuesday’s Leland & Gray-Black River boys game. A rescheduled date for that game was not immediately available.

The Castleton University women’s hockey team will host Plymouth at 3 p.m. Saturday in a New England Hockey Conference quarterfinals game.
