COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - The highly anticipated match-up between the Golden Eagles and Lady Vols will have to wait another month as Tennessee Tech softball head coach Tory Acheson announced today that the game has been rescheduled. The rescheduled game will be played on April 20 at 5 p.m. at the Tech Softball Field.
Low temperatures have not allowed the field conditions to improve over the past week since TTU was forced to postpone its doubleheader against Middle Tennessee last Wednesday. With the forecast for Wednesday predicting temperatures in the mid-30s with a chance for precipitation, Acheson thought it was best to delay the game.
"With the large number of people who will want to attend the game, we have agreed to reschedule to a later date where the weather will hopefully make for a better event," Acheson said.
The Golden Eagles finished 3-2 last weekend at the Frost Classic in Chattanooga to improve to 5-5 overall this season. Tech will return to the field on Friday against Western Carolina in the first day of competition at the Buzz Classic in Woodstock, Ga.
