Overnight storms wash away Saturday events

ANDERSON — A line of thunderstorms moving across much of the state Friday night left behind enough of a mess to cause the postponement of events involving area athletes stretching from Wabash to Bedford.

The Class 4A softball semistate at Bedford first was delayed an additional two hours to a 3 p.m. start before being pushed over to Monday all together.

Pendleton Heights (26-4), coming off an upset of top-ranked Roncalli in last week’s regional, will open play at 1 p.m. Monday against Franklin Central (19-5). The second semifinal pits Plainfield (17-10) against Jennings County (25-7) at 3 p.m., and the championship game is scheduled for 8 p.m.

Some three-and-a-half hours north, in Wabash, rain also forced the postponement of the Class 2A baseball regional featuring a pair of Madison County teams.

Alexandria (19-12) now will open play against sixth-ranked Delphi (22-6) at 5 p.m. Monday. Lapel (12-12) faces No. 1-ranked Northfield (26-3) at approximately 7 p.m.

Monday’s winners will return at 7 p.m. Tuesday to determine a regional champion.

Closer to home, Anderson Speedway called off its Saturday night racing card because of the threat of further severe weather in the forecast.

The late model sportsman series and front wheel drive ovals and figure-8s were scheduled to be in action Saturday. The rescheduled date for that card will be announced later this week.

Anderson Speedway will host street stocks, modifieds, ThunderCars and legends on June 8.
