Winter weather plays havoc with baseball, softball doubleheaders

APPLETON, Wis. -- The snowstorm that hit the Appleton area on Wednesday and into Thursday has altered both the Lawrence University baseball and softball schedules.

Lawrence baseball has postponed its Saturday (April 13) doubleheader with Monmouth College and its Sunday (April 14) doubleheader with Cornell College. No make-up dates have been set. Lawrence baseball returns to action on Monday (April 15) when the Vikings travel to the University of Chicago.

Lawrence softball was scheduled to host Monmouth on Saturday, but that doubleheader has been moved to Lake Forest College. The Vikings and Scots will play at Lake Forest on Saturday, and the first pitch is set for 3 p.m.

Lawrence softball's Sunday doubleheader with Grinnell College has been pushed back to April 28. The Vikings will take on the Pioneers in Janesville, Wis., at a time to be determined. Lawrence was already scheduled to play Illinois College in Janesville on April 27 as the "North" and "South" teams from the conference met in a crossover weekend.
