Weather wreaks havoc on Charlotte 49ers sports schedule

In case you didn’t notice, we got a little snow in the Charlotte area. As a result, many of the Charlotte 49ers spring sports that were set to debut were snowed out. Here’s the latest:

–The baseball team, scheduled to open play this weekend against Youngstown State and Virginia Tech, had their series wiped out. They’ll travel to High Point on Tuesday to open he 2014 slate.
–The softball team opened play with a 1-1 afternoon at Gardner-Webb last Saturday. But the snow wiped out this weekend’s First Pitch Classic at the Phillips Softball Diamond as well as a Wednesday tilt with South Carolina. The Niners and Gamecocks will do battle this coming Wednesday.
–Tennis had action snowed out as well–men’s matches against Wofford and at Winthrop were wiped. Those will be played at later dates (at Winthrop on February 26 and home versus Wofford on March 13). The women’s home match against Winthrop and at Wofford were also postponed, but Sunday’s match against FIU is still on.
–The men’s basketball game against Marshall is still on as scheduled.

Keep it here for any schedule updates as they become available. We’ll be at the game tomorrow tracking the action so look for out pre- and post game coverage throughout the day.
