(Bethany Brookens/

The first day of the Class 4A boys tennis state tournament was delayed because the courts at Pueblo City Park were wet from overnight rain.

Play was supposed to begin at 9 a.m., but court conditions didn't allow play to begin until 2 p.m.

As a result, only first-round matches will be played on Thursday. Quarterfinals and semifinals will be played on Friday. Championships matches remain scheduled for Saturday.

The 5A tournament, held in Denver, began as scheduled at 9 a.m.
