Tuesday’s excessive heat forced the postponement of several high school sporting events in Marin County. With temperatures approaching 110 degrees in some areas, administrators decided it would be unsafe for athletes to compete.

The first day after Labor Day featured a fairly light sports slate, with football, soccer, cross country and water polo already off the schedule. Golf, tennis and field hockey would have been the only sports affected, with around nine events that have been postponed, some for Wednesday and others for a date to be determined. No volleyball matches have been postponed due to the heat.

Other events could be postponed this week, with temperatures expected to stay close to 100 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday. Forecasts call for temperatures to dip into the 80s in time for Saturday afternoon, when four football games highlight the Marin County High School sports schedule.


Redwood and Tam braved the heat at Meadow Club on Tuesday as the Giants cruised to a 166-294 win. Redwood’s Taylor Bridges took medal honors with a 3 of 39 and Imani Kathirya was close behind with a 40. The Hawks were led by Lola Spendov with a hard-fought 52.

East Bay championship-winning Marin County Club is currently competing at Cold Springs Country Club for the Women’s Nine Hole Golf Association regional crown. Marin beat rival Sequoyah Country Club 107-112 in a division winner battle on August 23 to advance to regionals.

Marin’s roster includes Noel Stubblefield, Jill Lineman, Linda Hope, Juanita Rivera, Abby Johnson and Karen Dolkas, along with nine other players who have featured in team games.
