Tournament directors pushed back one day the University of Alabama in Huntsville’s softball games in The Chillout tournament at Wilson Morgan Park.
The Chargers were scheduled to play Friday, but UAH President Dave Williams canceled all athletic events through Friday after the Feb. 12 campus shootings. UAH will hold a memorial for slain professors Friday night at 7 in Spragins Hall.
The change forces UAH to play three games Saturday and three games Sunday. The Chargers’ opener is Saturday at 10 a.m. against Berry College.
The tournament starts Friday at 10 a.m. The University of North Alabama, which now has to play three games Friday and one Sunday game, is the other area university participating. The schedule is available at http://tinyurl .com/bw9ytq.
