Weather getting the best of spring sports in Triangle

Posted February 16, 2013

Winter weather and baseball do not mix. For that reason, early season games in the Triangle are among those claimed Saturday by the snow falling across the Carolinas.

Top ranked North Carolina, who defeated Seton Hall in their season opener Friday, had originally moved Saturday’s game up to 11 a.m. in hopes of beating the weather, but that has now been postponed. The Tar Heels will scrap the Saturday contest and wrap up a two-game series with Seton Hall on Sunday at 1 p.m.

North Carolina State had moved their regularly scheduled 4 p.m. game against Appalachian State up to 1 p.m. Saturday, but that too has been moved. The Wolfpack and Mountaineers will now attempt to play a double header on Sunday starting at Noon. 

North Carolina Central was hoping to get their season started Saturday with a double header against New Jersey Institute of Technology, but both games of the double-dip have been cancelled. No make-up plan has been announced for the washed-out games. The teams have not yet made a judgment on a scheduled double header for Sunday.

East Carolina, taking on a ranked Virginia team, had originally planned an afternoon game in Greenville, but changed the start of the contest to 10 a.m. The Pirate Clash softball tournament in Greenville also got a head start on the weather by announcing Friday that they would shift all of Saturday's games up to start at 8:30 a.m. Both squads have opted out of Sunday competition due to the threat of inclement weather. 

Campbell jumped the gun on their weather plans as they moved a weekend game against Eastern Michigan to Friday. The Camels split the pair but were forced to move their Saturday game to Sunday at 1 p.m. at Buies Creek.

Elsewhere, The Shaw University Softball Challenge has been postponed on Saturday as has the CIAA Tennis Round-Up at St. Augustine’s.

While most outdoor events are taking a hit Saturday because of the weather, basketball games are all still on as planned. UNC vs. Virginia, NC State vs. Virginia Tech and the Shaw-St. Aug. mens/womens double header beginning at 2 p.m. are unaffected.

    What a GREAT HOST the Triangle Area is.....why? The Wright State Invitational Baseball series was scheduled to be played this weekend at the USA Baseball Complex in Cary. Baeball teams from Wright State, Temple, Toledo, LaSalle, Monmouth, Villanova, Canisius, Albany, Delaware and Temple were scheduled to compete in the three day affair....And all came from the North and the snow should make them feel at home!
