MARS HILL, N.C. - When it looked like spring was starting to bloom in the Southeast, Mother Nature changed Carson-Newman's opening weekend of South Atlantic Conference games at Mars Hill with periods of rain Friday morning.
Instead of starting the series Friday, the teams have pushed the start to the originally scheduled doubleheader Saturday starting at noon with the weekend wrapping up on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Carson-Newman (14-3) has won five of its last six SAC openers after beating Newberry 5-3 on Feb. 23, 2018. A 10-7 loss at Catawba on Feb. 24, 2017 is the only setback in that span. Overall, the program 17-11 in the first conference contest of the year going 16-11-1 in the opening series.
