Mother Nature prevents multiple games

The storms that swept through West Michigan yesterday afternoon wreaked havoc on the local prep sports schedule.

Spring Lake’s varsity baseball and softball teams were supposed to head north to take on Ludington, but those contests were postponed because Ludington’s fields were too wet to host the games.

In addition, Fruitport was forced to postpone its home track and field meet. The meet was already to serve as a make-up for a previous rainout. The event, which also features Spring Lake and Orchard View, will be made up on Monday.

After the storms subsided, a few athletic events were able to be played. Grand Haven’s varsity soccer team traveled to Hudsonville and defeated the host Eagles, 2-0 in overtime.

Western Michigan Christian’s girls soccer team took on Tri-Unity Christian and won 7-0 in a game that was called early because of lightning.

The forecast calls for rain showers through Saturday, so more cancellations are a distinct possibility the next several days.
