Bit of archaeology here. You will need to use stsadm to run it.

Use this command in the script.

$Sites = Get-Content -Path C:\SitesToDelete.csv
ForEach ($s in $Sites)
stsadm -o deletesite -url $s

You can use PowerShell to script it with your input but remember to use stsadm to interact with SP2003.

You might need to set up stsadm environment path or navigate to correct folder before execution. REF: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/sharepointcomic/2008/08/06/stsadm-path-access-stsadm-at-anytime-in-command-prompt/
