Weather alters LMC Athletics schedule this week

BANNER ELK, N.C. – Because of the forecasted weather in Banner Elk and the surrounding areas this week, the Lees-McRae College athletic department announced a pair of schedule changes for this week.

The men's lacrosse game against Belmont Abbey today, which was originally supposed to be played in Banner Elk but was moved to Belmont, N.C. due to field conditions, has now been postponed due to severe weather in the area. The make-up date has not yet been determined.

The second schedule change is with the men's and women's tennis teams. The Bobcats were originally supposed to take on Limestone at 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon. However, with wintry weather forecasted for Banner Elk that day those matches have been moved to Sunday. The start times for those contests are slated for 1 p.m.

Stay tuned to throughout the spring season for schedule updates.
