Weather rains on local games

NATCHEZ — Two local high school softball games involving four area schools as well as the district opener for Trinity Episcopal’s baseball team were canceled Tuesday afternoon because of inclement weather.

Natchez High School’s junior varsity and varsity home games against Port Gibson High School were rained out. Lady Bulldogs head coach Alphaka Moore said she is unsure if the games will be rescheduled.

Monterey High School’s JV and varsity home games against Concordia Parish rival Vidalia High School were also a victim of the bad weather. Lady Wolves head coach Kayla Shirley said the games will be rescheduled for a later date in the season.

Monterey’s home varsity softball game against Block that was rained out last Thursday will be at 4 p.m. today. No junior varsity game will be played.

Trinity Episcopal’s MAIS District 7-A varsity baseball home game at Chester Willis Field against Tensas Academy was also called because of heavy rain that came in from the south during the mid-afternoon. The game is tentatively rescheduled for 4 p.m. today, only if the field can get dry enough after the rain leaves the area.

Natchez High’s JV and varsity home softball games against MHSAA Region 6-5A opponent Pearl River Central High School that were scheduled for Friday afternoon have been postponed because of the Lady Bulldogs’ participation in the Class 5A Girls’ State Championship Game against South Jones High School. Moore coaches the varsity girls’ basketball team as well as the softball team.

However, no decision has been made yet on Natchez High’s junior varsity and varsity baseball games against McComb that are scheduled for Friday afternoon, but there’s a good likelihood that those games will be canceled said Natchez head coach Brian Kossum.
