Rain postpones various sporting events

Many of last weekend’s athletic events encountered a wet surprise as rain poured down during all scheduled Cerritos competitions causing all events to be postponed.

Sports affected include men and women’s track and field, baseball, and softball.

The Falcon baseball team’s game against Glendale College last Friday has been rescheduled for Feb. 26 at 2 p.m.

Also, the baseball game formerly slated for last Saturday against Los Angeles Valley College was postponed until Feb. 27 at 1 p.m.

As for the Cerritos softball team, their game at Antelope Valley College, which was supposed to be played on Friday, has been moved to 3:00 p.m. on Monday, April 12.

The Cerritos College softball game scheduled for last Friday has been rescheduled to over one month from now on April 12 at 3 p.m.

Finally, last Saturday’s scheduled all-comers track meet was postponed and no make-up date is expected to be announced.

This was supposed to be track and field’s season opener but track and field head coach Doug Wells doesn’t seem shaken up about it.

“(The postponement) was no big deal,” Wells said, “This time of the year we usually get a few meets rained-out.”

Players got the call as soon as weather conditions were evident that their event was cancelled.

“Coach called and told everybody to spread the word that the meet wasn’t going to happen,” said hurdler Misheal Jacho.

Now track and field athletes have to wait for this Friday’s away meet at Mt. Sac.

Wells said that there is supposed to be rain for this Friday as well but that his team will be ready whether or not the meet came to fruition.

“It wont bother us we train through the rain anyway,” he said, “hopefully this Friday we’ll be ready.”
