Despite the fact that Boston school officials said Monday night that school would not be canceled on Tuesday, athletic officials are waiting until Tuesday morning to decide if the city soccer and volleyball championships will be played Tuesday afternoon.

The Boston City League soccer and volleyball playoffs scheduled for Monday were canceled on Sunday because of Hurricane Sandy.

Boston schools athletic director Ken Still said he would make a decision Tuesday at 10 or 11 a.m.

In volleyball, north conference champion Latin Academy is scheduled to play South conference runnerup Burke at Burke. In the second semifinal, South conference winner O'Bryant is to meet North runnerup Madison Park, also at Burke. Those matches were to be played Monday.

The winners were supposed to meet in the championship match Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Burke.

Both boys’ and girls’ soccer semifinals were also slated for Monday.

On the girls' side, first-place Latin Academy was to play fourth-place O'Bryant on the upper field at Madison Park. In the other girls' semifinal, second-place New Mission was set to play third-place East Boston on the lower field.

In the boys' semifinals, first-place Madison Park was scheduled to play fourth-place Boston International at White Stadium.

Second-place East Boston was to play third-place Brighton, also at White Stadium.

The soccer championships were originally scheduled for Wednesday at White Stadium.
