Staff Reports • Dec 17, 2015 at 6:25 PM

Continued inclement weather in the Danville, Ky., area has again forced a rescheduling of the Mid-South Conference Softball Championship at Millennium Park.

Torrential downpours over the last 48 hours have left the fields unplayable and as such, opening-round games have been pushed back to 3 p.m. CDT today. No. 5 Cumberland will face off against No. 4 Rio Grande at that time.

Today will now just feature opening-round games with winner’s bracket games and four consolation games scheduled for Friday beginning at 9 a.m. CDT. Action will continue on Saturday before the tournament concludes with the championship game and if necessary game on Sunday.

Nine softball players named MSC Scholar-Athletes

Nine Cumberland softball players were honored as Mid-South Conference Scholar-Athletes, conference officials announced Wednesday.

In order to be nominated, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.25 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved at least sophomore academic status. The nine members of the Bulldog squad represented the second most from one institution, with Campbellsville registering 10.

Shawnee Kirk, a health & human performance major from Lakewood, Calif., registered a 3.44 GPA. Sarah Murray, a nursing major from Collierville, marked a 3.27.

Health & human performance major Caroline Curran, a Bradenton, Fla., native, recorded the highest GPA on the club with a 3.75. Victoria Bennett, an athletic training major from Smithville, notched a 3.52.

Megan Kelley, a health & human performance major from Murfreesboro, marked a 3.30 GPA and Katelynn Stoll, an athletic training major from Avon Park, Fla., earned a 3.59.

Another pair of health & human performance majors Jessica Lozano, of Wilmington, Calif., and Kaleigh Pearce, of Cross Plains, appeared on the list with 3.32 and 3.42 GPAs, respectively. Rounding out the list was Sydney Broderick, a criminal justice/public administration major from Knoxville, with a 3.65.
