Staff Reports

While the much-needed rain of the last few days helped with the drought situation, it put a dent on Lancaster County sports events on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The heavy precipitation prevented Lancaster Post 31 junior and senior teams from playing. The Aquatics team could not complete their meet for the 10 and under on Wednesday afternoon.

The Dixie Boys 14-year-olds only played half an inning before the game was called. Other teams never got to play.

If the summer storms allow the games and events to resume and complete the results will be in Sunday’s edition.

This is what we do have:

Lancaster Post 31 games rained out

Lancaster Post 31 seniors suffered an 11-1 loss to Rock Hill Post 34 Monday night in Rock Hill.

J.R. Tripp and Justin Hinson led Post 31’s offense.

Tripp had a single and Hinson had a double. Evan Byrd and Jordan Workman saw mound action.

Weather has caused havoc with the Post 31 junior and senior teams. The seniors were rained out Tuesday in their game against Chester. Officials have yet to determine if and when the game will be rescheduled.

The junior team, in their best of three series with Rock Hill, were rained out Tuesday and Wednesday. Lancaster currently leads the series 1-0. If a third game is needed, it will be at Eggleton Field, but the date and time have not yet been set.
