AU softball home games against Penn College postponed

ALFRED, NY – The Alfred University softball team’s home doubleheader against Penn College, scheduled for Sunday (March 24) at 1 p.m., has been postponed due to inclement weather.


The non-conference twinbill will be made up Sunday, April 14, at 1 p.m. It marks the third time this week that poor field conditions caused by persistent snow have forced the postponement of AU softball games. The Saxons, who returned last weekend from a 12-game Spring Break trip to Arizona, were scheduled to open their new on-campus field March 20 against RIT, but that doubleheader was rescheduled to April 2 at 3 p.m. AU was to play a pair at Pitt-Bradford today (March 22), but those games have been rescheduled to April 17 at 3 p.m.


AU is scheduled to play next on Tuesday, March 26, in a 3 p.m. doubleheader at Cazenovia. The Saxons are set to open Empire 8 Conference play with a Saturday, March 30, doubleheader at Nazareth.


If Alfred’s makeup with RIT April 2 can’t be played, the Saxons will open their new field with a pair of Empire 8 Conference doubleheaders the weekend of Friday, April 5 (3 p.m. vs. Ithaca) and Saturday, April 6 (1 p.m. vs. Utica).
