BANNER ELK, N.C. – With the spring sport season fully underway, there has been several Lees-McRae College athletic programs' schedules altered for this weekend. Among the programs affected are softball, men's volleyball, men's lacrosse, women's lacrosse and men's and women's tennis teams.
The Bobcat softball team was supposed to open its home schedule this Sunday by hosting Lincoln Memorial in a non-conference doubleheader. Due to the threat of rain in Banner Elk on that day, those games have been postponed to March 17. The start times of 1 and 3 p.m. for those games remain unchanged.
The men's volleyball team was originally supposed to host Alderson Broaddus tonight (Friday) at Williams Gymnasium. That match has been postponed with no makeup date decided.
The men's and women's lacrosse teams were scheduled to play home games in Banner Elk this weekend. Due to field conditions, both games have been moved to Sunday at Watauga High School in Boone, North Carolina. The men's team will take on No. 17 Mount Olive at 1 p.m. with the women's team hosting Davis & Elkins at 3:30 p.m.
Lastly, the tennis teams' matches at Averett today (Friday) have been postponed to Monday March 4. The matches are tentatively set to begin at noon from Danville, Virginia.
