Impending Winter Storm Postpones Pfeiffer Athletic Events
Misenheimer, N.C. (Dec. 9, 2018) – The Pfeiffer University Athletics Department has postponed upcoming athletic events as the region prepares for an impending winter storm that is expected to dump several inches of snow and ice on the region in the coming days.
The women's basketball game originally scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 9 at 2:00 p.m. against N.C. Wesleyan has been postponed and will now be played on Wednesday, Dec. 12 at 6:00 p.m. in Merner Gym. In addition, the Falcons matchup with Virginia-Lynchburg on Dec. 11 has been postponed. No makeup date for that game has been determined
"The safety of our student-athletes, coaches and staff is our first priority," said athletics director Danielle Lafferty. "Athletic competition is important in the life of our University, but risking the well-being of our student-athletes, our opponents, game staff and officials is not appropriate with the severity of the pending weather situation."
