Rain rules as spring sports season winds down
Rain has played havoc with the local high school sports schedule.
Both Laurens and Clinton have canceled non-conference regular season baseball games, and LDHS has canceled its last regular-season softball game as the playoffs are set to begin Monday.
Clinton finished up its baseball regular season Tuesday night by capturing its second straight Region 4-3A championship with a 6-1 victory at Union County. Clinton assistant coach Peyton Spangler tweeted it was the first back-to-back region baseball titles in school history for the Red Devils.
Senior Wil Stewart pitched a complete game four-hitter, striking out eight and walking two in the win. Wilson Wages went 2-for-3 with a triple and drove in a run.
The Red Devils girls soccer game against Woodruff to decide the Region 4-3A championship was also postponed Thursday due to rain. The game was to be played at Emerald. The game has been rescheduled for Friday at 6 p.m. at Clinton.
