Wolverines at Falcons, ppd.
Unplayable field conditions prevented Mt. Lake Area and Red Rock Central/Westbrook-Walnut Grove from playing Thursday afternoon in Westbrook.
The game has been rescheduled to be played as a doubleheader on May 8, when the teams were scheduled to meet for the second time this season. However, the location of the doubleheader remains up in the air, although it is tentatively scheduled as being held at Mt. Lake.
Customarily, the host of the second game will host the doubleheader. However, RRC Athletic Director Bryce Pack noted that if the doubleheader is played at Mt. Lake, seven of his team's 10 conference games will wind up being played on the road.
