Sunshine Doesn't Help Softball Field

The sun was shining for most of the day Wednesday, but oficials at Tennessee Tech University say it didn't really help. The softball doubleheader between Tennessee Tech and Cumberland originally scheduled for Wednesday afternoon and evening had to be canceled because of field conditions. Officials in the athletic department say steady rain over the past two weeks has made the field unplayable. At this time, there has not been a makeup date scheduled. The Golden Eagles are still scheduled to take on Volunteer State in a doubleheader on Tuesday, Oct. 13 and could add another doubleheader to their fall schedule. So far in the fall, Tech is unbeaten at 4-0 and has yet to allow a run by an opposing team. The Golden Eagles last took the field on Sunday, September 27 when they defeated Chattanooga State, a top junior college program, 2-0.
