Rain washes out sports slate

Newton and Iowa City City High’s girls got seven holes of golf played before the inclement weather halted play at Westwood Golf Course Monday. The rain, which came with thunder and lightning Monday, washed out the area high school sports slate for Monday.

Track meets at Gilbert for the CMB boys and at PCM for girls from CMB, PCM, Colfax-Mingo and Lynnville Sully were cancelled. As was the PCM boys golf tournament in which Colfax-Mingo, PCM and Pella Christian were to have played. Lynnville-Sully’s home coed golf dual with H-L-V was postponed.

CMB’s girls postponed their home soccer game with Gilbert to May 12. Pella Christian’s girls were to have played tennis at Knoxville, which is now slated for May. A boys’ soccer game at Bondurant-Farrar for Pella Christian was moved to May 23.

There might be decisions to be made on high school athletic events scheduled for today because of the wet conditions and forecast for more rain.
