Weather sends entire Manogue series out of town

Lingering winter-like weather has forced South Tahoe High to move its home softball and baseball games to Bishop Manogue on Friday and Saturday.

The Vikings were scheduled to play their home openers in softball and baseball on Thursday at Todd Fields at South Tahoe Middle School, but the fields became saturated after snow showers filtered into the area Tuesday and Wednesday.

South Tahoe Athletic Director Don Borges announced on Thursday that the rescheduled series openers at Bishop Manogue were pushed back to Friday because of rain in the Reno area. The schools will play 3:30 p.m. (softball) and 3:45 (baseball) games on Friday, then reconvene at Manogue on Saturday for doubleheaders, beginning at 10 a.m. for softball and 11 a. m. for baseball.

Borges also indicated that the Vikings’ softball team will play at the softball field at STMS until the Field of Dreams at South Tahoe High becomes playable.

“When STHS’s softball fields dry out, we will go back to softball JV and varsity at STHS and baseball JV and varsity at STMS,” Borges said.

Both varsity teams have now lost four home games to other schools because of the weather.

“It’s been absolutely tough,” said STHS baseball coach Don Amaral. “We’ve had one field practice on our field all year.”

The teams have six home games remaining on their schedules. The baseball team has a three-game series with North Valleys on April 29-May 1 and a three-game set with Carson on May 5-7. The softball team’s remaining home games are a three-game series with Wooster on April 29 and May 1 and a three-game set with Carson on May 6 and 8.
