TAMPA, Fla. - Indiana's softball game against Buffalo on Friday, March 16, at the USF Speedline Invitational, which was delayed by rain in the bottom of the first inning, is now slated to restart at 5 p.m.
The game was initially supposed to restart at 1 p.m., and was then pushed back to 3 p.m. before being moved once again to 5. The rain has cleared from the Tampa area, but none of the fields at the Greco Complex have tarps and the fields were not immediately ready after the rain passed.
The Hoosiers' game agianst Princeton, originally scheduled for 12:30 p.m. on March 16, has now been moved to a 10 a.m. start on Saturday, March 17. Indiana's contest against Boston University, originally set for 10 a.m. on Saturday, will now be played at noon.
To accomodate the postponed games, the tournament will now go from double elimination to single elimination, with bracket play beginning Sunday, March 18.
Today's contest against Buffalo was halted with score tied at 1 in the bottom of the first.
After Buffalo went ahead 1-0 in the top of the first on singles from Marcy Hansen and Sharon Barr, the Hoosiers answered in the bottom half of the inning.
Junior Julia Hamilton led off with a single to second base, and stole second. One out later, classmate Jennilee Huddleston doubled to right center to score Hamilton. Junior Tory Yamaguchi followed by dropping a double into shallow right to put runners on second and third, and senior Rachel Terry was ahead 2-0 in her at bat when the umpires pulled the teams off the field.
