Holiday Inn Select-Tulsa Festival Snowed Out
Feb. 25, 2003
Tulsa, Okla. - The 2003 edition Holiday Inn Select-Tulsa Festival ended the same way the 2002 edition ended, with a small twist. This season the tournament did not start before it had to be called due to snow. Due to snow amounts of as much as 12-inches the tournament has been cancelled, announced TU Head Coach James Pinkerton.
"We are very disappointed that we are not going to be able to play this weekend," said Pinkerton. "The team was looking forward to playing in front of a home crowd for the first time this season. But more snow in the forecast along with colder temperatures, I could not see risking the safety of not only our players, but the players on the other teams, as well."
The Golden Hurricane were17-3 at home last season in the Donna J. Hardesty Sports Complex, including a 1-0 victory over Drake in the only game TU played in last season's tournament. Tulsa hopes to return to action by hosting the Embassy Suites-Tulsa Invitational, Mar. 7-9.
