MITCHELL — For the second time in a week, the Mitchell High School basketball games with Watertown have been moved due to the weather.

With the expectation of extreme cold conditions in South Dakota, Mitchell has already called off school for Thursday, Dec. 22, meaning the Kernels and Arrows will not play their games, which were originally scheduled for Dec. 13.

The girls matchup at the Corn Palace will be played Thursday, Feb. 9, while the boys game at the Watertown Civic Arena is now slated for Saturday, Feb. 18.

Both Kernel teams' next action will be Wednesday, Dec. 28 at the Hoop City Classic, with the Mitchell girls facing Campbell County (Wyo.) at 1:30 p.m. at the Corn Palace, and the same two schools facing off on the boys side at 4:30 p.m. Both teams will play at 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 30 against Thunder Basin (Wyo.) at the Corn Palace as part of the event.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Mitchell Republic." Often, the "Mitchell Republic" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
