Bell-Jeff Playoff Game Moved Because of Snow and Cold

November 19, 1994|BRYAN RODGERS

Snow and cold weather have forced Bell-Jeff's Division X playoff game against host Big Bear to be relocated to San Bernardino Aquinas High School at 7 tonight.

Three to four inches of snow fell on Big Bear's field during the week and school officials could not line the field properly because it had frozen.

Temperatures have ranged from 12-30 degrees.

An announcement was made Friday afternoon that the game had been moved.

"We're not going to be missing the snow, but I assume it will be cold in San Bernardino, too," Bell-Jeff Coach Doug Woodlief said.

"The coaching staff went over a few things with the kids on how to dress. They'll need to wear gloves and extra things like that.

"We're just happy to be in the playoffs."

The Guards have not been to the playoffs since 1986.

Aquinas is located about 50 miles from Big Bear.

It is the second consecutive week that a game has been moved because to weather.
