Salem sectional games postponed to Thursday

Salem High School has postponed Wednesday evening’s Class 3A Sectional 30 boys basketball games due to power outages caused by severe weather.

Principal Derek Smith tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the sectional openers — Scottsburg (5-18) vs. Salem (20-2), followed by Silver Creek (14-8) vs. Corydon (8-15) — will be played Thursday evening.

As a result, Sectional 30 semifinals will be moved to Saturday night at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and the championship game will push back to Monday night at 7 p.m.

Parts of Southern Indiana were hit hard by an overnight and early morning thunderstorm, which carried wind gusts of more than 60 miles per hour at times and caused power outages.
