OTTUMWA — The gloomy, rain-soaked, non-May-like weather that hovered over Ottumwa Thursday and Friday has caused a number of Ottumwa sports events to be canceled.

The Ottumwa Invitational put on by the boys tennis team scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Saturday at Dan Staggs Court has been canceled, along with the girls tennis team's dual at Des Moines Lincoln.

In addition, the boys soccer game Friday against Des Moines Lincoln at Eric Wertheim Field was canceled and the Evans Middle School seventh and eighth grade boys track team's conference meet at Mount Pleasant originally scheduled for Friday has been rescheduled for 4:30 p.m. Monday.
