Friday’s wet, icy weather shuffled Warren County’s high school sports schedule.

While today’s Red Carpet Classic basketball games will be played as scheduled — St. Aloysius tips off the six-game marathon at Warren Central at 10 a.m. against Mount Olive — four sporting events scheduled for Friday were either postponed or canceled:

* Warren Central’s soccer games at Northwest Rankin were postponed until today at 3 p.m., and will be played at Millsaps College. WC and Northwest Rankin will meet again Tuesday in the first round of the Class 5A playoffs at Northwest.
