VANDALIA — The Cumberland Pirates softball team hasn't had the best luck with weather over the past week.
While Cumberland is still one of the final eight teams in 1A softball, their Super-Sectional against Hardin Calhoun was postponed Tuesday due to unplayable conditions at Vandalia High School.The game is being moved once again, now scheduled for 7 p.m. at Springfield Sacred Heart Griffin High School tonight. There is a 30 percent chance of rain during the morning, but skies are expected to be clear during the afternoon and game time.Vandalia was a last-minute replacement for the Athens Super-Sectional site, which had to be pushed back due to rain. The Pirates' sectional final was rained out in Moweaqua Saturday morning, forcing Cumberland to take on St. Anthony for the sectional title Monday, a day that was originally scheduled for Super-Sectionals.The game was called after six innings as rain came into the area, allowing Cumberland to be crowned sectional champions. Now, Cumberland's preparing for its Super-Sectional again in its third tentative site in as many days. Hardin is a somewhat familiar foe for the Lady Pirates, as the two teams met in Peoria for third place in 2011. Cumberland downed Hardin 6-0 for third place, with seniors Jasie McMechan and Olivia Titus playing key roles on that team as sophomores.
