High School Roundup: Storms postpone baseball playoff games


Thursday’s thunderstorms wiped out both Section 4 Class C quarterfinal baseball games involving area teams.

Second-seeded Lansing (16-1) was coming up to bat in the bottom of the first inning of its game with seventh seed Sidney (7-10) when lightning and heavy rain suspended play. They will resume the game at 1:30 p.m. today in Lansing.

In Elmira Heights, fourth seed Edison (16-3) and fifth seed Trumansburg (13-5) will play at 4:30 p.m. today. Their game never started on Thursday.

Other Class C quarterfinal games slated for Thursday included top-seeded Seton Catholic Central (13-3) hosting No. 8 Bainbridge-Guilford (13-3) and sixth-seeded Tioga (13-4) traveling to No. 3 Unatego (16-3).
