VHSL 4A State Swimming and Diving Championships POSTPONED until Friday, February 20

February 18, 2015

Media Advisory


Due to previously received inclement weather and today’s impending inclement weather in Christiansburg and across the state, the VHSL 4A Swimming and Diving Championships will be postponed until Friday, February 20, 2015.  On Friday, February 20th, the 4A and 3A championships will take place concurrently in different sections of the Christiansburg Aquatic Center.  Please note: the two meets will NOT be merged into one, as meets were merged in 2014.  The two meets will run as two independent meets, simultaneously. This change does affect the diving portion of the 4A and 3A meets.  The diving will be combined such that all of the boys will dive together and all of the girls will dive together with scores split of into their respective classifications. 

 

The decision to move the 4A meet was made with three objectives:

 

Safety of the students and staff

Christiansburg is expecting additional snowfall today and we do not want schools traveling through that weather this afternoon for a Thursday meet.

 

Preservation and completion of the meet in their current formats

Running the meets concurrently allows us to preserve the preliminary/final format

 

Safety of the students and staff

Additional winter weather is forecasted for Saturday.  Should Saturday’s 2A meet be disrupted by inclement weather, the 2A meet would be postponed until Sunday, February 22nd.

 

2A schools are asked to secure approval from your administrations for Sunday competition as a contingency. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact Shawn Knight (sknight@vhsl.org) in the League office.
