The spring sports season, save for a few indoor track and field meets, is yet to begin per the inclement weather. Original TRC baseball and softball schedules have thus been scrapped. Athletic directors met and devised new Three Rivers Conference “ball” schedules, ones that are tentatively set to begin on April 17. Tuesdays will be divisional, west versus west, east versus east, double-header nights. Thursdays will be non-divisional, east versus west, nights. West schools also have divisional double-headers on April 27 and May 11. There are three east versus west baseball/softball games on April 20. All baseball double-headers start at 4:00, softball at 4:30. Singular (TRC) games start at 5:00. Schedules are updated on www.3riversconference.org. Not all west teams will play all east teams (as currently devised). Teams may not play the same amount of conference games. Division champions will be determined by winning percentage. Schools will add non-conference games at their discretion where they fit. Three Rivers golf schedules have been left alone. Those meets generally start a bit later in the season anyway. Any missed meets will be rescheduled. Track and field meets will be as previously scheduled. An event in Rushford on April 5 has been cancelled. An event in Plainview on April 6 has been rescheduled to April 16. A meet on April 10 in Hayfield has been rescheduled to May 1. A meet scheduled for May 13 (PEM “Winged Foot”) may go on as planned (weather permitting). Southeast Conference athletic directors are meeting on April 13. They may do some changes too. Their league has far fewer schools with baseball, softball, and golf squads. Rescheduling won’t be as difficult. As typical, everything is subject to change. The Journal Sports will publish at least some schedules in next week’s paper.
