Saturday varsity games moved to Monday because of snow

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 18, 2013

One of the latest snowfalls on record has been devastating for the Cook Inlet Conference baseball season.

For the second straight day, an entire slate of games was canceled for varsity and junior varsity teams.

That means we will have to wait even longer to see who will advance to the championship pool that will determine which two CIC teams advance to the state tournament.

The only two varsity games that matter right now are Eagle River-Dimond and West-Chugiak. They are the final two matchups of the regular season.

The games were supposed to be played Friday and Saturday.

Now Eagle River-Dimond will be played Monday at 4:30 p.m. and West-Chugiak will be Monday at 7 p.m. Both games are at Mulcahy Stadium, just about the only capable field thanks to its million-dollar FieldTurf infield.

Dimond needs to beat Eagle River and then hope Chugiak beats West to advance to the championship pool.

If Eagle River wins, then South would take the No. 4 seed by winning a tiebreaker over Dimond.

West and Chugiak will play for the No. 2 seed, with the loser settling for the No. 3 seed.

Service has already secured the No. 1 seed.

Records carry over from the regular season.

The ASAA/First National Bank Alaska State Tournament begins May 30 in Anchorage.
