NEVADA -- Nevada High School's baseball team was scheduled to host McDonald County on Tuesday in what was to be the final home game of the season.
But due to the recent rain and wet playing conditions, the date was washed out.
NHS Athletic Director Kevin McKinley said the team will now play a doubleheader at McDonald County next Tuesday, May 8.
The team was already scheduled to go to Mac County next week, with a varsity and JV game scheduled. Now it will be a varsity doubleheader.
McKinley noted there weren't many options left as far as rescheduling.
Today is the district seed meeting, as well as all-school physicals at NHS. On Thursday Mac County plays East Newton and on Friday Nevada plays at Seneca. Saturday is Nevada's prom, with Nevada playing at Harrisonville on Monday.
The district tourney is scheduled to start on Monday, May 14.
A record season?
Marty Atnip's Tigers are now 14-5 on the season with at least five games left. There are four regular season games remaining, all on the road (Seneca, Harrisonville, two at Mac County). There's also at least one district game guaranteed.
Why is that important? Because Nevada needs just one victory to tie a school record for wins in a season.
The NHS school record for baseball wins in a season is 15. It's been done twice.
The 1995 team coached by Chris Adams and the 2001 team coached by Tyson Beshore both reached 15 wins.
And if it weren't for the rain, the Tigers could have attempted to tie the record on Tuesday at home.
Now, if the record is tied and if it's broken, it will have to be done on the road.
