Forecast Cancels Softball Season Opener

Dickinson, ND- The Dickinson State University Women's Softball team will have to wait a few more weeks until they are able to see dirt and grass.  

The Blue Hawks were scheduled to open their 2015 season with three games against York College and a double header against Doane College in Nebraska.  Mother nature had different plans for the ladies in navy and gray. With this weekend's forecast, the games scheduled on February 27th, 28th and March 1st have been canceled.

The Hawks will now have to wait until they travel to Tucson, AZ on March 13th to open up their 2015 season. "With the projected forecast it wasn't worth it for us to travel so far and not even play a game. As a team we will have to re-focus and continue to prepare for our 14 games scheduled in Arizona. When we schedule these late February and early March games you always hope that the weather cooperates, sometimes it works out sometimes it doesn't " Fleury, said.
