“We may very well have five (region) games next week,” Oxford coach Bradley Roberson said.
Here are updates on some of the teams affected by rain:
Tupelo at South Panola – moved to April 17
Mooreville at Alcorn Central – will resume at 7 p.m. Monday (third inning, Mooreville ahead 6-4)
Pontotoc at Shannon – will resume at undetermined date (third inning, Shannon up 3-1)
Caledonia at South Pontotoc – set for 7 p.m. today, but could get rained out again
Greenwood at Lafayette Co. – set for 4 p.m. today; it’s the third day in a row they’ll have tried to play
