Basketball scrimmage canceled ahead of a busy week

Because of wintery weather moving across the region, the Colby Community College home men's basketball scrimmage with Lamar Community College scheduled for Tuesday evening is canceled.

However, CCC fans still have several opportunities to watch college athletics in the next week.

Both Trojan basketball teams hit the hardwood at the Community Building this weekend. Friday, the men tip with Bethany JV at 7:30 p.m. and return Saturday for a 5 p.m. start with Iowa Western Community College. Also on Saturday, the women open their home season against the Sterling College JV. The game begins at 1 p.m.

Sunday, the Trojan wrestlers compete in a 1 p.m. tri-meet with Otero and Iowa Western community colleges.

As the winter sports seasons open, the CCC volleyball team hosts the opening round of the Region VI playoffs on Nov. 6. The first serve is set for 6:30 p.m. at the Community Building.

Current schedules are listed on the CCC athletics website,
