Rain, wind and cold forced postponement or cancellation of many scheduled sports events on Thursday.
Lawrence High called off its own invitational boys tennis tournament, a home track and field quadrangular, a softball doubleheader against Shawnee Mission North at Holcom Complex and a girls soccer match at Shawnee Mission South.
Meanwhile, Free State High postponed a home girls soccer match against SM Northwest, a softball twinbill at Olathe South and its own invitational track and field meet.
The track meet -- the first on the Firebirds' new facility -- tentatively has been rescheduled for April 26.
Also, the Sunflower Classic, a track and field meet scheduled today in Olathe, has been postponed until Monday. Lawrence High, Free State and Baldwin are scheduled to participate in that meet.
