Phelps forfeits girls basketball regional to Niagara

NIAGARA, Wis. — Niagara has advanced to the WIAA Division 5 girls basketball regional semifinals.

Phelps forfeited Tuesday’s regional opener to Niagara, citing a lack of players, according to principal and athletic director Scott Trevillian.

The fourth-seeded Badgers (16-6) will host No. 5 Gillett or No. 12 Goodman-Pembine in the regional semifinals Friday.

Much of Tuesday’s high school sports schedule — other than Kingsford’s girls basketball game with Gladstone and West Iron County’s boys basketball game with Calumet — has been postponed for cancelled.

There has not been confirmation on the status of North Central’s boys basketball game with Munising.
