Weather can wreak havoc on a high school basketball season

Weather can wreak havoc on a high school basketball season

n the mid-1950s, as a player at Bangor High School, there were several times we left for Aroostook County for games in a motor coach, not a school bus, with two or three inches of snow on the ground and more snow on the way.

There was no I-95 to Houlton, just up old Route 2 with two-way traffic

Today, most of the basketball games scheduled for days like that are postponed. There hasn’t been many high school boys or girls teams that haven’t had a game postponed or a practice canceled or both because of weather this season. Games postponed are made up, but practices canceled are lost.
