The semifinal rounds of the Mountain Empire District baseball and softball tournaments were both suspended Wednesday due to the thunderstorm that swept through the area. In softball, Galax led Fort Chiswell 6-3 with one out in the bottom of the fifth inning when play was halted two outs short of an official game. Play resumed Thursday at the point where it was stopped.
In baseball, Grayson County led Fort Chiswell 3-0 in the bottom of the second when the game was suspended. It, too, was resumed Thursday at the point which the game was halted.
In baseball, plans were to play both semifinal games and then the championship game Thursday.
Should Galax have held its lead in softball, the finals will follow the Grayson-Narrows semifinal. Should Fort Chiswell have come back and won, the finals will be played Friday.
