Baseball and Softball Mid-year Updates


Mother nature has taken its toll on the 2018 WPIAL Baseball and Softball season as a good portion of team's schedules have been "struck out." For Ellwood City, 24 total games (12 baseball, 12 softball) have been impacted by the weather - 11 games cancelled (no make-up) and 13 games postponed to later dates. However, some Spring weather has broken through as the season has hit the midpoint. Baseball has played a total of 9 games and the Lady Wolverines have played 7 games. Since we are down to about two weeks left of scheduled conference play, we here at the W-Zone would like to do a quick recap of what has enfolded so far.
