Weather wreaked havoc on signing day ceremonies across the Pikes Peak region Wednesday.

Routinely the biggest signing day of the year, the one that includes the first opportunity for football players to sign national letters of intent with colleges, was blown away with the cold, wintry weather.

Sand Creek High School was the only area school to brave the conditions for a signing day ceremony, despite the school and its activities being closed.

Most schools had announced the postponement of ceremonies to later in the week, including Cheyenne Mountain, Discovery Canyon, Doherty, Falcon, Fountain-Fort Carson, Liberty, Palmer Ridge, Vista Ridgeand and Woodland Park.

Student-athletes were not prevented from signing letters of intent simply because of weather.
