WASHINGTON – Georgetown softball’s weekend games that were scheduled to be played in Farmville, Va. as part of the Longwood Lancer Leadoff Tournament have been cancelled due to inclement weather. The games were to be played on Sat, Feb. 15 and Sun., Feb 16 and will not be rescheduled.
The Hoyas were scheduled to play against Bucknell University, Saint Joseph’s University and the host school, Longwood University over the span of two days and four games.
The missed games will shorten the Blue & Gray’s schedule from 56 games to 52 with the exclusion of the games played at the BIG EAST Tournament from Thurs., May 8 to Sat., May 10 in Chicago, Ill.
"We are disappointed that we won't be able to play this weekend," said Head Coach Pat Conlan. "We were looking forward to building on our positive start. Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans. We will get back to practice and prepare for South Carolina."
