State Softball Semifinals Postponed to Saturday

The two local softball teams still playing in their state playoff brackets will now have to wait an extra day for their semifinal match-ups.

Madison County and Orange County both had Friday's semifinals postponed by the VHSL until Saturday because of the rain making its way to the state.

The Mountaineers will now play Eastside at 1p.m. Saturday at Salem's Moyer Complex. The Division 2 state softball championship pushed to 10 a.m Sunday in Salem.

Orange and Great Bridge will now play at 7 p.m. Saturday at Westfield High School in Chantilly in the Group AAA softball semifinals. That championship game will now be played at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Thursday's VHSL announcement does not impact Western Albemarle's AA semifinal against E.C. Glass in girls' tennis, still set for 9 a.m. Friday at the Virginia Tech Tennis Center in Blacksburg.
