Minton mentioned by email that Springfield is not in school on Friday and it’s “not safe to send buses out.”
Wayne is 10-0 overall and tied with Springfield (9-0) atop the Greater Western Ohio Conference National East, both teams at 5-0. Wayne also is scheduled to host defending Division II state champion Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary’s at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
