Bad field conditions cancels games

MONTEREY — The heavy rain that hammered the Miss-Lou region Monday afternoon forced the cancellation of the varsity softball game between LHSAA District 6-B opponents Grace Christian School and Monterey High School.

In an interesting twist, the Lady Wolves won the game when Grace Christian decided to forfeit it. That in turn gave Monterey, now 12-7 overall, the outright District 6-B championship with a 5-1 district record.

The Lady Wolves’ home finale against Georgetown High School that was scheduled to take place Tuesday afternoon was also cancelled due to unplayable field conditions. Now Monterey will have to wait until Thursday to find out who its opponent will be for the bi-district round of the LHSAA Class B Playoffs.
