A Third Try to Complete the Highland Tournament
Maybe the third time is the charm.
They'll try again to finish the 48th Highland Tournament Wednesday night. January 11th was the originally scheduled championship night at Highland. Weather forced additional postponements on January 18th and on February 5th. As weather conditions
permit, they'll try again tomorrow. (JAN 12)
