    KHSAA State Softball Postponed Till June 14

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 7, 2019

    Due to this weekend's long-range weather forecast in Lexington, the start of the 2019 KHSAA State Softball Tournament has been postponed to Friday, June 14. The quarterfinal games will be played in a continuous format on June 14 starting at 10 a.m. The order of games for the quarterfinals will remain the same and times for the other rounds will be finalized and assigned in the coming days.

    "Though this was not an easy decision to make, it was one we reached after consulting with the University of Kentucky, our softball staff, and others in an effort to provide an optimal experience for the participants in the best interest of our member schools," said KHSAA Commissioner Julian Tackett. "Postponing the games till next weekend will prevent our teams from having to wait out the weather on an hourly basis, while also incurring additional expenses through extended lodging and travel. Every effort continues to be made for an optimal participant experience, especially in those areas we can control."

    The semifinals are currently planned for Saturday, June 15, followed by the championship on Sunday, June 16.

    So there was no way to reschedule this any sooner than next Friday? The weather isn't looking too bad after this weekend. This will make 13 days in between games. Head scratcher from me.

    Probably so, but I suspect they wanted fans to be able to come on Friday/Saturday instead of midweek.

    Kentucky had prior commitments for their field as they had softball camp going on during the week.
