WestPAC title games washed out; one playoff game still on tap

JOHNSTOWN — The WestPAC will have to wait another day to crown its baseball and softball champions.

The softball title game, which features Conemaugh Valley taking on Berlin Brothersvalley, has been pushed back to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at V.E. Erickson Field in Richland Township.

North Star and Meyersdale will meet in the baseball championship at 7 p.m. Wednesday at Salisbury-Elk Lick.

Both games were postponed because of poor field conditions after a rainy start to the week in the region.

At least four District 6 baseball playoff games have been postponed as well. The only local team that might hold a playoff game today is Northern Cambria, which pushed the start time of its Class A contest with Williamsburg back two hours to 6 this evening.

Homer-Center’s Class A game with Ferndale is postponed to Wednesday, when the teams will meet at 4 p.m. in Ferndale. Juniata Valley’s game with Penns Manor also was pushed back a day in Class A.

In Class AA, Cambria Heights’ game with Penn Cambria was washed out and will be made up on Wednesday while Tyrone’s game at Central suffered the same fate.

A District 6 spokesman said he had not heard any updates on Blairsvlle’s schedule game at Bald Eagle Area or Bellwood-Antis’ matchup with West Branch.

The District 6 Track and Field Championships are still on for 3 p.m. at Mansion Park in Altoona.
