PSU softball doubleheader moved to today

PLATTSBURGH — Poor field conditions and the threat of rain forced the Plattsburgh State softball team to push its home doubleheader with Geneseo to today.

The conference games, which were originally scheduled to be played at Cardinal Park Saturday, will still begin at noon. In between the two conference tilts, the Cardinals will honor the contributions of their senior class in a short ceremony.

Additionally, the team will still be hosting its “StrikeOut Against Cancer” event during the games with Geneseo.

The “StrikeOut Cancer” initiative unites the American Cancer Society and the National Fastpitch Coaches Association to help raise awareness and funds to assist the battle against cancer. Since starting the StrikeOut Cancer program over 10 years ago, NFCA membership teams have raised thousands of dollars to support the fight against cancer.

Members of the Plattsburgh women’s basketball team will be on-hand to conduct a 50-50 raffle and sell pink t-shirts.

All proceeds will be donated to the Alex Hollander Education Fund. Alex is the son of former Buffalo State softball coach of 24 years, Sandy Hollander, who lost her six-year battle with cancer during the 2012 season.
