PERU – Going south to open their “home schedule” was an option for the Peru State baseball team last week and it worked to their benefit. They opened their Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart) schedule with a pair of wins over Graceland (Iowa) in Joplin, Mo.
First, Peru State was scheduled to face Kansas Wesleyan in Salina, Kansas, on Wednesday. That contest has been canceled.
The Bobcats were to have played at home again this coming weekend hosting Heart opponents from the South Division – Missouri Valley on Saturday and Central Methodist (Mo.) on Sunday. Obviously, with several inches of snow still on the Centennial Complex Field in Peru, hosting those games is not an option.
Thus, the Peru State team will actually travel to Missouri Valley in Marshall, Mo., and play a double header on Sunday beginning at noon. A decision on the make-up games with Central Methodist has yet to be made.
Please continue to watch the Peru State athletic website for schedule changes at www.pscbobcats.com, check the College’s Facebook page, and/or watch for tweets on the College’s athletic twitter – @pscbobcats.com.
The Bobcat softball schedule again is faced with changes due to workings of Mother Nature.
Peru State was scheduled to face Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kansas, on Wednesday. That double header has been cancelled at this point.
The Bobcats will travel further south in Kansas on Thursday to take on Southwestern College in Winfield, Kansas. The double header with the Moundbuilders will begin at 3 p.m. Southwestern is presently 3-5 on the season and like the ‘Cats have had several cancellations. The Moundbuilders last played on Saturday and dropped a pair of contest to one of Peru State’s Heart of America Athletic Conference opponents – Graceland.
Peru State is presently 1-5 having won their first game of the season last Friday as they shut-out Bethany (Kan.) as part of the Friends Quadrangular in Wichita, Kan.
The ‘Cats will next try to play on Tuesday, March 12, in Baldwin City, Kansas, against Heart opponent Baker at 2 p.m.
