The Valley District has canceled the rest of its boys' and girls' basketball tournaments because of the impending snowstorm. The games, scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, will not be made up.
Under the Virginia High School League's new playoff system, district tournaments have no bearing on the postseason. They are essentially exhibition events for local bragging rights.
The new system -- featuring "conference" tournaments in the first round -- tips off next week. Harrisonburg/Rockingham high schools are spread out over three conferences.
