Rain Sets Softball Back a Day

EMPORIA, Kan.-Due to overnight and continuing rains in the Emporia area, the start of the NCAA Division II North Central Regional Softball Tournament has been postponed one day. The tournament is now scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Thursday, May 8 at the Trusler Sports Complex in Emporia.

The grounds crew was able to remove the tarp on Turnbull Field and work the field during a break in the rain late Wednesday morning, however continued light showers have made additional work impossible.
