Mother Nature caused a complete washout across the board for Trigg County’s spring sports, causing the baseball and softball teams to shoehorn their make up games into an already full schedule.

The Wildcat baseball team entered the week having not played a game since a doubleheader loss at Livingston Central April 23.

The Wildcats (4-10) lost games with Union County, Caldwell County, and Lyon County due to the rain last week.

Head coach Jeff Embrey said the Wildcats will make up all three games as part of doubleheaders in the coming weeks.

The Wildcats were scheduled to play at Russellville Monday and host Crittenden County Tuesday at the Complex.

Saturday, the Wildcats will host Union County in a 11 a.m. doubleheader, making up one of the washed out games.

On Monday, the Wildcats will play another home doubleheader with Providence at 5 p.m. One of the games is a makeup game from last month when a faulty sprinkler head flooded the baseball field at the Complex and forced the game to be postponed.

The Wildcats will play another doubleheader at Lyon County Tuesday, May 10 and will make up the Caldwell County doubleheader Saturday May 14 at 1 p.m.

The Lady Wildcat softball team has had an even longer layoff due to the weather, entering Monday’s game with Lyon County on a ten-day layoff.

The Lady Wildcats lost games last week that were scheduled with Marshall County, Caldwell County, and Crittenden County.

Lady Wildcat head coach Kevin Meacham said the Lady Wildcats will play Caldwell County Friday and play a doubleheader with Crittenden County in Marion Monday.

The Lady Wildcats have also added Hopkinsville to the schedule for a Wednesday game.

Mother Nature also wiped out Trigg County appearance in the Big Rivers Track Invitational last Tuesday at Ballard Memorial.

Head coach James Shelton said the bad weather and potential delays would have made the long trip even longer, especially for a school night, so the team did not make the trip.

A small meet with Caldwell County scheduled for last Thursday was also wiped out.

Shelton said the track team will pick up a meet with Logan County this week to help make up for the lost time on the track.

The Wildcats are also scheduled to compete in the Madisonville Invitational Friday.
