Raider baseball sectional postponed to Thursday

Rain in Wisconsin Rapids Tuesday, June 4, forced the suspension of the first WIAA baseball sectional semifinal between Eau Claire North and Stevens Point and wiped out Hudson's semifinal game against Eau Claire Memorial slated for later that afternoon.

Both games are scheduled to be played Thursday, June 6, with Eau Claire North and Stevens Point resuming play in the top of the fifth inning at 9:30 a.m. and the Raiders and Old Abes scheduled to begin at approximately 11 a.m. The winners will meet in the sectional final at around 2 p.m.

Eau Claire North trailed Stevens Point 4-0 Tuesday but had two runners on base with no outs in the top of the fifth inning when play was halted.

The sectional champion will advance to the WIAA State Tournament June 11-13 at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute.
