A substantial winter snowstorm, which brought up to a foot of snow to the Portland-McMinnville area Thursday and Friday, has impacted the Linfield sports calendar in multiple ways. The storm caused closure of the college for part of Thursday and all of Friday, plus the postponement or cancellation of multiple weekend athletic events.
Four Northwest Conference basketball games involving Linfield men's and women's teams were affected. Linfield was scheduled to travel to Lewis & Clark Friday to play the Pioneers in a NWC twin set, but those games were called off Friday morning due to hazardous driving conditions. The Wildcats and Pioneers have rescheduled those two contests to Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 6 and 8 p.m.
Saturday's home basketball doubleheader with the Willamette Bearcats was also postponed but has been rescheduled to Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6 and 8 p.m.
Linfield's track and field team cancelled altogether its indoor competition Saturday at Boise State University.
And Sunday's Oregon Sports Awards scheduled for the Tiger Woods Center on the Nike Campus was postponed. Linfielders are in the running for team and individual awards. The reschedule date will be announced at a later time.
