Hickory vs. Conneaut girls basketball game canceled

Hickory will give Conneaut the forfeit win

(WKBN) - The girls basketball game between Hickory and Conneaut has been canceled Monday after two students from Hickory High School died in a car accident Sunday night. 

Hickory High School released a statement Monday saying, "As the Hornet community works through all the emotions concerning tragedy at Hickory, our after-school games/meets have been canceled today."

Police say Alexis Myers, 16, and Danielle Nelson, 15, died when the SUV they were in crashed into a tractor-trailer.

The 17-year-old female driver and another passenger were taken to a Pittsburgh hospital with serious injuries. 

Due to other scheduled events throughout the week, Hickory will give Conneaut the forfeit win. This, however, will not change the seeding for the Class 5A tournament set for next weekend.
