The long awaited start of high school sports in Halifax County will have to wait at least a few more days.

Halifax County High School athletic director Allen Lawter announced that the girls and boys basketball games against Patrick County on Monday and the wrestling team’s match against Magna Vista on Tuesday have been postponed.

The schedule for the rest of the week is still intact as of now, but any updates from Lawter or the high school will be announced when they are made.

The wrestling team has another match against Bassett scheduled for Thursday; the boys and girls swim teams have meets on Thursday and Friday; and the basketball teams have a game scheduled against Martinsville on Friday.
