Taft High School has indefinitely postponed all athletic events scheduled for today in light of Thursday's shooting at the school.
Taft was scheduled to play Wasco in four sports: girls basketball and girls soccer in Taft, and boys basketball and boys soccer in Wasco. Athletic director Marsha Eubank said the schools planned to make up the games but that no date had yet been determined.
Taft had no events scheduled Thursday. Eubank said the next events on the calendar, scheduled for Tuesday, will be held as scheduled.
