Thursday's snowstorm forced postponement of a number of Pantagraph area sporting events.

Central Catholic High School's girls basketball game against Eureka was rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. today at Bloomington. Also, University High's girls game against Pontiac was pushed back until 7:45 p.m. today at Normal.

The Bloomington at Lincoln girls game was postponed with no makeup date set, while the Decatur MacArthur at Normal West girls contest was wiped out by a Decatur teachers strike. It has yet to be determined by Big 12 Conference athletic directors if the game will be made up or count as a forfeit victory for West.

Also postponed with no date set was Bloomington's home wrestling match against Olympia.

On the junior high level, the finals of the Illinois Elementary School Association Class 7A and 7AA girls state tournaments were postponed until Saturday.

In 7A, Normal Epiphany (26-0) will meet Effingham St. Anthony (23-1) for the championship at 2:30 p.m. at Central A&M Middle School in Assumption. The game will be preceded by the 1 p.m. third-place contest between LaHarpe (24-2) and Springfield Blessed Sacrament (21-2).

The 7AA tournament has been moved to Parkside Junior High in Normal because the gym is unavailable at Riverton, site of the first three rounds. Country Club Hills Southwood (18-3) faces Springfield Franklin (19-1) at 1 p.m. for third place, followed by Edwardsville Liberty (18-2) against Washington Middle School (24-0) in the 2:30 p.m. title game.
