SMC Softball: Hope game cancelled

Rebecca Slinger | Thursday, April 5, 2007

Saint Mary’s will have to wait to face MIAA second place Hope College – thanks to the weather.Officials cancelled Wednesday’s game between the teams Wednesday morning because of the threat of snow.Freshman second baseman Mo Healy said the cancellation won’t affect the team.”If anything, this will give us more time to prepare. I think we’re ready for them,” she said. “Whatever the schedule, we’ll still be ready.”The game has not officially been rescheduled, but coach Erin Sullivan said the team is looking to reschedule the game for April 26 in place of its scheduled game in Pittsburgh against Robert Morris. Saint Mary’s is riding a two-game winning streak after sweeping Manchester last weekend.The Belles are next scheduled to play Tuesday in Grand Rapids, Mich., against Calvin. Saint Mary’s will follow that contest with a trip to Tri-State April 14 and a game against cross-town rival Bethel April 16 at Ivy Field on Notre Dame’s campus.
