ROCKVILLE – The thunder rolled and raindrops fell as Blair sophomore pitcher Courtney Wyche stood on the mound Monday, awaiting word from the umpire and head coaches about whether the game would continue.
It was the bottom of the sixth, and Wootton had managed to avoid a Blazer shutout by scoring four runs in quick succession. However, as the sky darkened and the thunder rumbled in the distance, the umpire made the decision to call the game, and Blair escaped with a 9-4 victory.
“The momentum turned, and they had all the momentum,” said Blair head coach Louis Hoelman. “I don’t know what would have happened if the game would have continued. They’re a good team, and they were getting hot now. I’m real happy that we got it in early and we had a little bit of room for error there.”
