OTTUMWA – The Ottumwa softball team's Class 5A, Region 5 game against Iowa City High Saturday was postponed until Monday because of inclement weather.
What started as a lightning induced-weather delay matured into a postponement as the lightning continued to decorate the sky. Minutes after the game was postponed, Mother Nature unleashed a fierce thunderstorm.
The Bulldogs will play the Little Hawks at 5:30 p.m. at Huston Field. Ottumwa's game will be directly followed by a game between West Burlington/Notre Dame and PCM for the Class 3A, Region 7 Championship.
Nasty weather also forced the Oskaloosa softball team's Class 4A, Region 5 semifinal game against Pella Saturday to be postponed until 5:30 p.m. Monday at Osky.
