The Mercy Medical Center Basketball Classic at North Canton Hoover is being postponed to February 16-17 due to a weather forecast that projects heavy snowfall and cold temperatures this weekend.
The Classic was scheduled to have 10 boys basketball games, and include area teams Lake Center Christian, Wadsworth, Lake, Canton McKinley, Copley, Hoover, GlenOak, Green, Revere, Perry and Tallmadge.
“We apologize for the inconvenience, but we have had a number of schools withdraw from the tournament this weekend because of the weather forecast,” Hoover Athletic Director Tim Walker said in a statement released Friday afternoon. “We will be releasing a new schedule of the games next week, and we are excited that most of the previously scheduled teams will be able to join us Presidents Day weekend.”
Mike Bohley, 36, has stepped down as Chippewa football coach following six seasons and a 44-22 record.
In his first season in 2013, Bohley led Chippewa to the second round of the Division V playoffs and a 9-3 record. The Chipps returned to the playoffs in 2014 and 2015 under Bohley.
“It’s that old cliche that you always want to leave something better than when you got it, and I feel really good about that,” Bohley told the Wooster Daily Record. “I was blessed to have tremendous guys on staff with me, and the kids here always met us halfway.”
Prior to Bohley's arrival, Chippewa was 1-29 in its previous three seasons. He plans to continue teaching history at Chippewa High School.
