AU softball team’s Empire 8 doubleheader with Stevens postponed

HORNELL, NY - The Alfred University softball team’s Empire 8 Conference doubleheader against visiting Stevens Institute of Technology, scheduled for Saturday, April 14, has been postponed.

The games will now be played on Sunday, April 29, beginning at 1 p.m. The key conference matchup - both teams are 3-1 in the Empire 8 standings (tied for second) entering this weekend’s play - was postponed due to recent inclement weather, which has made for poor playing conditions at Hornell High School’s field, where the Saxons play their home games. In addition, there is a significant chance of afternoon thunderstorms on Saturday.

The Saxons’ scheduled non-league doubleheader at RPI, scheduled for April 29, is now being cancelled. Alfred plays next on Sunday, April 15, when the Saxons host Empire 8 foe Elmira in a doubleheader at Hornell High School beginning at 5 p.m.
