Monday afternoon showers forced the cancellation of two local prep softball games and a single baseball game.
Both the Central Catholic Eagles’ and Lady Eagles’ respective District 8-1A baseball and softball home games against Gueydan High School were cancelled.
The baseball team’s game will be rescheduled for April 19 and played as a doubleheader with the already scheduled CCHS game. However, instead of CCHS traveling to Gueydan on that date, Gueydan will come to Amelia. The first game will be played at 3:30 p.m. with the second game scheduled to start 15 to 20 minutes after the first game’s conclusion.
No date for a makeup game for the CCHS softball game had been set as of press time.
In Patterson, the Lumberjills’ District 9-3A softball game with Erath also was rained out. Ironically, the game was a makeup game from a scheduled March 24 matchup between the two squads that had been rained out, too.
Because the two teams already were scheduled to meet for the second go-round of district play on Saturday in Erath, they now will play a doubleheader in Erath on Saturday. Games are set for 10 a.m. and noon.
The ’Jills’ non-district road matchup with Plaquemine High School today will proceed as scheduled. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
The ’Jacks’ 5:30 p.m. road game against Abbeville today still is on as scheduled.
In other local action, the Berwick Panthers’ varsity matchup with Vandebilt Catholic still is set for today in Berwick. However, the start time has been pushed up from 6 p.m. to 4 p.m. to avoid more possible inclement weather. A junior varsity game between the two schools will follow.
Nearby, the junior high Parish Track Meet is still set for today at Geisler Stadium in Berwick.
The Berwick Lady Panthers’ road matchup with Kaplan today at 4 p.m. also will go on as scheduled.
Morgan City High School baseball team’s District 8-4A game against Ellender today in Houma will be played at its scheduled 4 p.m. time, while no word was available as of noon on the MCHS softball team’s District 8-4A matchup with Vandebilt Catholic, which also was set for 4 p.m. in Houma.
