Snow wiped out the first two days of this high school sports week, which just means more action later this season. Another important week is on hand, with the SL24 Memorial Classic basketball event being held Friday and Saturday at the 76ers Fieldhouse in Wilmington to raise money for the UnLocke the Light Foundation.

Girls basketball and wrestling take the spotlight on Wednesday, with boys basketball picking up on Thursday and into the weekend. There is action in the pool the rest of this week.
