Due to most of the teams deciding not to come to the snowflake League games today due to weather, Clearbrook is canceling today's Snowflake League games in Clearbrook. It was not our decision to cancel and we were planning on coming as of this morning, it was other schools decision to cancel as of this morning due to weather south of us. Clearbrook did not have a choice, because there wasn't enough teams to make it happen today. Once again, our Snowflake League games in Clearbrook are canceled for today. Please let Mr. Loberg know if you have any questions.
