EDITOR'S NOTE: This article has been updated to include the announcement about the Yankton-Sturgis basketball doubleheader scheduled for Jan. 23.
High winds and snow led to a number of area programs adjusting their schedules on Friday.
— The gymnastics triangular featuring Yankton and Harrisburg at Brookings, scheduled for Friday, was cancelled. It will not be made up.
— The wrestling triangular featuring Yankton and Aberdeen Central will be rolled into a meet hosted by Harrisburg on Jan. 28. The sub-varsity matchups between Yankton, Aberdeen Central and Brandon Valley are cancelled, and will not be made up.

Also announced on Friday, the Yankton-Sturgis basketball doubleheader scheduled for Jan. 23 will be played in Sturgis. The change was made due to COVID-19 issues at Stanley County High School, the previously-scheduled host.
