Mother Nature is rearing its ugly head again in terms of the Bobcat softball schedule. This time it is forcing changes due to the flooding.
Peru State was scheduled to have played Mount Mercy (Iowa) here on Thursday in a Heart of America Athletic Conference (Heart) double header. However, the flood situation would force the Mustangs to be driving an extra six to seven hours to make it to Peru. The coaches agreed to move the game to the final day of the regular season – that being April 28.
The ‘Cats will play two conference double headers this coming weekend on the road in Missouri.
On Saturday, March 23, Peru State will be facing Missouri Valley in Marshall, Mo., in a double header scheduled to begin at noon. The Vikings are presently 5-6 on the season and have not played a conference game to this point. However, weather permitting, they will face two Heart opponents before the ‘Cats hit town.
The next day, the Bobcats will face Central Methodist in Fayette, Mo., also at noon. The Eagles, who are receiving votes in the most recent coaches’ poll, are 8-6 on the season and will play six conference games before Peru State makes its appearance.
