(Ryan Casey/

With the closure of Adams 12 Five Star Schools on Monday due to severe weather this weekend, the Class 3A girls swimming and diving state meet has been moved to Tuesday.

The state meet host site, Veteran's Memorial Aquatic Center, is an Adams 12 facility.

CHSAA assistant commissioner Justin Saylor sent the following email to schools:

We were just notified that Adams 12 Five Star Schools (along with most in the metro area) will be closed tomorrow due to the severe weather that has overstayed its welcome in the metro area. Because of the closure, we will push back the 3A State Meet to Tuesday, March 16th. Diving will be earlier in the day with warmups beginning at 6:15am (7:30am start to the competition) and swimmers allowed into the facility for the 200MR at 10:15am. ... Our schedule will have the meet finished at around 5:30pm so we can get people back on the road and home on Tuesday evening.
