WYANDOTTE — Rain washed out five pool games, the third-place and championship games at the Wyandotte Fall Classic fast pitch softball tournament.
The final game of the schedule on Friday, Sept. 7, was postponed and the full schedule as well as the third-place and championship on Saturday, Sept. 8, were victims of the persistent rain that has doused northeastern Oklahoma the past several days.
“We had the tarp on, but it was just a steady rain that wasn’t stopping,” Wyandotte coach Kendall Young said. “We had to make the decision. We would have tore our field up. It would have been a mess.”
Young said he talked to coaches on a couple of the teams and he hoped to finish up the schedule in another couple weeks.
“If not, we are going to finish up what we can,” Young said.
The Wyandotte-Commerce game on Friday and Saturday’s final four pool games — Miami vs. Oaks, Commerce vs. Ketchum, Wyandotte vs. Kansas, and Welch vs. Adair — were cancelled.
