This week's winter storm has packed a big punch when it comes to high school sporting events.

Several inches of snow and sleet, and even some freezing rain, coated most of central North Carolina on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

On Wednesday, the N.C. High School Athletic Association announced it has approved a measure to allow individual wrestling regionals to occur on Sunday if needed.

The NCHSAA also announced it will allow schools to play four basketball games next week, given that the fourth game is on Friday, Feb. 21. No games can be played on Saturday, Feb. 22 since that is Seeding Saturday.

The Greater Neuse River 4-A Conference has canceled its conference tournament for boys and girls basketball for the first time in the history of the conference. The Cap 8 4-A Conference joined that list on Friday afternoon.

On Thursday, Durham Academy officials announced the TISAC conference tournament would be condensed into one day. Both the semifinals and the finals for boys and girls basketball will be held at Durham Academy on Saturday.
