Another time, maybe.

Once again this week, excessive rain in Troy has forced spring sports teams around the area to cancel, and subsequently, reschedule games.

After approximately two inches of rain hit the city Wednesday night, area teams woke up to sloppy, muddy and unplayable fields on Thursday afternoon.

Luckily for teams, most of which who were not even able to play a game this week with rain falling relentlessly, the weather will clear up substantially Friday and through the weekend.

On Friday, teams can expect slightly warmer temperatures at game time, with Friday’s temperature topping out at 55 degrees and Saturday’s temperature reaching a high of 61 degrees.

The sun will make an appearance on Friday and Saturday, with meteorologists predicting a cloudless end to the school week and a partly cloudy Saturday.

This week’s weather has forced a change in several schools’ baseball and softball schedules.

Pike Liberal Arts, originally scheduled to make its area debut against Fort Dale on Tuesday, was canceled and will be rescheduled at a later date.

Goshen and Pike County’s baseball teams were set to do battle Tuesday, but rain forced the two teams to cancel. Their matchup will now be played March 23.

Goshen’s softball team, scheduled to open and dedicate its new field Thursday against Pike County, was also forced to cancel. The teams will now play March 3.

And Charles Henderson, scheduled to play at Walker Thursday, had to cancel and will now play at Stanhope-Elmore on Friday.
