Softball postponed

Tuesday, September 14, 2004

SIKESTON - The anticipated battle of the Lady Bulldogs -- Sikeston (9-2) vs. Notre Dame (11-1) -- was postponed on Monday due to unplayable field conditions.

No makeup date has been announced.

Sikeston coaches, players and fans gave it the "old high school try" in an effort to get the rain-soaked field ready for play.

The field normally used for girls softball was ruled out, then another, an adjacent baseball field which was considerably drier, was prepped.

In the end, a problem with moving the bases to regulation softball distance sacked the idea.

Sikeston goes on the road against East Prairie on Wednesday.
