Weather Adjusts Weekend Series with Fort Lewis
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The potential for another round of cold temperatures and more precipitation in the Pikes Peak region late in the weekend will mean changes for the conference-opening softball series between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and Fort Lewis. The teams will play a tripleheader on Saturday and a single game on Sunday. Saturday's tripleheader will begin at 10 a.m., while the Sunday game is set to start at 10 a.m.
RMAC Code limits teams from competing in softball when the wind chill is below 25 degrees, and The Weather Channel's latest forecast puts Sunday's high at 27 degrees with a strong north wind. Once a series begins, the Code requires teams to complete as many games as possible within a two day span.
This weekend will mark the first home games of the season for the Mountain Lions, who went 5-4-1 in the non-conference season. Head Coach Scott Peterson enters the weekend with 299 career victories in his 13th season with UCCS.
Live audio will be available for the first two games on Saturday at UCCS Radio. The final game of the series on Sunday will be carried only on GoMountainLions.com.
