A burst of winter weather shuffled the schedule for Western Massachusetts tournaments on Wednesday.

Semifinals in Division III volleyball were postponed to today. Lenox will travel to Frontier for a 5 p.m. start while unbeaten Lee will be in Orange tonight to take on Mahar. That match starts at 6:30 p.m. The Western Mass. final will be 4 p.m. at Holyoke Community College on Saturday.

Semifinal sites were also finalized in soccer for six county teams. The Greylock boys and girls will play in a doubleheader against Belchertown in Division II on Friday at Northampton High School. The girls will kickoff at 5 p.m., with the boys to follow at 7 p.m. Both Belchertown teams are defending Western Mass. champions.

The Pittsfield girls, the lone local team in the Division I field, will face East Longmeadow on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Westfield State University. The Generals lost to the tournament's top seed, 1-0, earlier this season.

Both Lenox teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday at Szot Park in Chicopee. The Millionaire girls play Granby at 11 a.m. in a rematch of last year's Western Mass. final won by Lenox. The Millionaire boys hit the field at 1 p.m. against Smith Academy.

Western Mass. finals for soccer are also set for Westfield State University on Sunday and Monday. Both Division II finals will be played Sunday while the Division III finals will be Monday. If the Pittsfield girls advance Saturday, they would play Monday as well.
