A massive rainstorm has caused widespread postponements of athletic events this weekend, including a slew of games or matches on Thursday.

Most schools have moved games to next week, or later in the month, but football teams have had an especially tough time rescheduling because of the week-to-week nature of the schedule.

With that in mind, the following is a statement from Harry Waterman, assistant commissioner in charge of football:

"Regular season games are the jurisdiction of the individual schools and school districts. Because of the number of conflicts that may occur, the individual schools and school districts are responsible for making the determination on any games to be rescheduled. Sunday is not an option for games to be rescheduled per CHSAA bylaws. Teams will be allowed to reschedule games to Monday, even if it means playing two games in a week."

So, yes, we will be getting Monday Night Football next week.

Below is a list of postponements, for all sports. Are we missing a game? Email it to rcasey@chsaa.org.
