Published 10:57 am Thursday, May 17, 2018

Fuqua School’s varsity softball and baseball teams will be playing their respective state semifinal games on a different schedule than originally announced due to inclement weather-related concerns.

Because of poor field conditions at the Dinwiddie Sports Complex in Sutherland following rain yesterday and last night, the No. 2 Lady Falcons’ softball state semifinal against No. 3 Southampton Academy has been moved from Thursday at 5 p.m. to Friday at 1 p.m.

The Fuqua baseball team’s state semifinal will still take place Thursday, but its start time has been moved up from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Shepherd Stadium in Colonial Heights. The game will feature the No. 3 Falcons taking on No. 7 Brunswick Academy.
