The spring high school sports season never even had a chance to get off the ground. And now, the Charles City seniors are patiently waiting because before June 1st Gov. Reynolds will be announcing whether they can play baseball and softball this summer.
This cancellation would be doubly hard for the school as their new baseball and softball fields are reportedly days away from being completely finished.
Superintendent Mike Fisher says one of the last steps involves the school staff finishing up the dugouts.
The scheduled May 29th baseball opening day is presumably going to need to be reworked as 2 weeks of practicing before a season opener is a common practice.
In other school district news, the dirt pile dubbed ‘Mt. College Grounds’ by Mayor Dean Andrews is a week away from coming down.
The rest of the dirt that the city is now using is being donated to the Elk’s Club in Charles City – as they are in need of dirt to sure-up the levies on their lake.
