NSIC Softball Tournament Changes Schedule due to Weather
The NSIC Softball Tournament is back at Sherman Park in Sioux Falls again this year, but rain has altered the schedule.
Action on Thursday began at noon with two games taking place in two different locations. Sherman Park, located by the zoo, is hosting five games on Thursday, while Bowden Field on the campus of Augustana University is hosting three games. Games were moved to Augustana's campus because of standing water on some of the fields at Sherman Park. All games will return to Sherman Park for Friday and Saturday.
