Nor’easter disrupts state championship week schedule

The Nor’easter forecast for the region tonight and tomorrow has caused some major disruptions to the CIAC tournament schedule for this week.

Included in the latest moves have been the postponements of tomorrow’s Div. III boys ice hockey and the Class LL and M boys basketball semifinals to Wednesday, and the postponements of Wednesday’s Class S and Class M boys swimming and diving finals to Thursday.

The FCIAC has five teams remaining in the basketball and hockey tournaments, although none are scheduled to play on Tuesday, when the brunt of the storm’s impacts will be felt.
