So far, rain has proven to be a side story and annoyance this week in many Virginia High School League Class 6 state tournament games and events.
And the wet stuff is in the forecast again for Saturday’s state championship games in Loudoun County, possibly forcing postponement until Sunday for some games if fields become unplayable.
Many of the matches and games have continued and been played in some sort of rainy conditions. No big storms and thunder and lightning, yet, that would cause delays and postponements.
But the rain, along with the threat of storms, certainly has caused stress and anxiety for tournament-game administrators and the various game managers. In girls softball and baseball games, the rain has caused some wet-ball issues.
Rain, rain, rain, please go away at least until Sunday so the state tournaments can be finished without interruptions.
We’ll see what happens.
