MCC-NPCC Purple Out softball games postponed until Friday

Today’s softball games between McCook Community College and North Platte Community College have been postponed until Friday because of the weather. The doubleheader – part of the annual Purple Out games for epilepsy awareness – is set for noon and 2 p.m. Friday.

The postponement means the Lady Indians will play six games in three days starting with a pair of games Thursday at home against Southeast Community College at noon at 2 p.m. After Friday’s home doubleheader with North Platte, MCC will travel to Scottsbluff to make up a pair of games rained out Easter Sunday against Western Nebraska. The Lady Indians have clinched a spot in the Region IX Division I tournament May 9-11.

On Saturday, North Platte will go to Columbus to begin the Region IX Division II tournament against Central Community College. That is a best-of-three series with the winner advancing to the Region IX championship series the following weekend at Beatrice against Southeast Community College.
