RAIN WASHES AWAY SOFTBALLâ€™S SCHEDULED GAME AGAINST STANFORD
STANFORD, Calif. -- Due to heavy rains that struck the Bay Area this morning, the Sacramento State softball team’s game against fifth-ranked Stanford has been cancelled and will not me made up.
The two teams were supposed to play at 1:30 p.m. this afternoon as part of the fifth and final round of the three-day, five-game Stanford Invitational. The Hornets (2-4 overall) completed the tournament with an 0-4 record, falling to Notre Dame and Stanford on Friday, and Western Kentucky and Notre Dame on Saturday.
Today marked the fifth game this season Sacramento State has not played due to rain. Earlier this year, the entire Santa Clara Invitational was cancelled, a tournament that would have seen the Hornets play four games.
Sacramento State returns to action next week where the team is scheduled to play six games. That stretch begins with a doubleheader at Nevada on Tuesday, Feb. 24 (noon), and concludes when the team plays in a round robin tournament hosted by San Jose State on Saturday and Sunday. During the round robin, the Hornets will play four times, including one game against San Jose State, and three games against Boston.
