Weather permitting, boys and girls sectional basketball action looks to swing into high gear on Wednesday after persistent snow wiped out today’s slate of contests.

Headlining Wednesday’s games, the No. 3 seed Lyndonville boys squad will host No. 14 Hammondsport in a Section V Class D1 contest at 6 p.m.

Lyndonville, which brings an 11 game winning streak into postseason play, is 16-4 while Hammondsport is 5-15.

The victor will then face the winner of Wednesday’s No. 11 Honeoye vs. No. 6 C.G. Finney contest Friday on the court of the highest seed.

Also in Section V boys make-up games Wednesday, No. 15 Kendall (5-15) visits No. 2 Geneseo (15-5) in Class C2 at 7 p.m. and No. 10 Holley (2-18) faces No. 7 Rochester Career Mentoring Charter School (8-12) at 6:30 p.m. at C.G. Finney.

Section V girls playoff competition looks to begin as scheduled on Wednesday with No. 11 Lyndonville (5-15) at No. 6 Arkport (12-8) in Class D1 at 7 p.m.; No. 9 Kendall (6-14) at No. 8 Bradford/Dundee (8-11) in Class C2 at 6 p.m. and No. 9 Holley (0-19) at No. 8 Marcus Whitman (1-17) at 6 p.m.
