With rain predicted to continue through the afternoon and overnight, Botetourt Sports Complex staff will attempt to prepare Field 1 for Azusa Pacific and Union to resume play at noon.

At 2 p.m., the additional two games that were suspended (Campbellsville/Oklahoma Christian & Shorter/Cedarville) will be resumed on the same fields on which they were competing, while the losers’ bracket game between Trinity Christian and Mississippi College will begin on Field 1.
