Snow forces St. Mary's to move season opener
Last week's deluge has caused the Seahawks to move Sunday's season opener against Roanoke to Roanoke. That means that St. Mary's will open the campaign with three consecutive road games.
There's still six to eight inches of snow on the Bermuda grass field that the team plays on, and with temperatures barely hovering above freezing, melting will likely take a while.
"We just have to kind of wait until Mother Nature takes its course," coach Chris Hasbrouck said, noting that the Seahawks' first home game won't take place until March 10 against Wooster. "I'm hoping that the snow melts by then. I've been telling the guys, 'You worry about the things you can control.' There's nothing we can do."
