It is becoming more and more apparent that Mother Nature is not a basketball fan.

A new snowfall on Saturday wiped out the slate of games and took the Ironton Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremonies as an additional calamity.

Ironton’s Hall of Fame Games were postponed until a later date and the Hall of Fame induction ceremonies and reception were rescheduled for 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

The second Ironton Hall of Fame class includes former NFL linebacker Danny Pride, outstanding all-around athlete and basketball star Ralph Snead, outstanding football player and current college coach Mark Snyder, high school and college golfing standout Justin Collins and All-American track star Anissa Campbell.

The ceremonies and reception will be held in the high school cafeteria.

The three games to be rescheduled from the HOF schedule are St. Joseph and Portsmouth Notre Dame, Ironton Lady Tigers and Rock Hill girls, and Ironton and Athens.

Ironton has a makeup game at Greenup County, Ky., on Monday beginning with the freshman game at 5 p.m.

St. Joseph will host Sciotoville East in their homecoming game.

Both games were originally scheduled for last Tuesday when the first snowfall hit and began to play havoc with the basketball schedule.
