Dickey and his squad hoped to be off and running toward their ninth-straight District IX title Tuesday in Brockway, but another nasty storm wiped out the field and delayed the game â€” which was originally scheduled to take place last week â€” to this afternoon. The Lady Chucks were also supposed to play St. Marys Tuesday in Brockway, and both games have been rescheduled for 4:30 p.m. today.
