Hinds reschedules, moves some sports events because of weather

RAYMOND — This week’s bad weather has forced Hinds Community College to move some sporting events off campus and postpone others.

Hinds’ football tryouts, originally scheduled for Wednesday, have been moved to Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. at Joe Renfroe Stadium on the Raymond campus. Registration will take place on the day of the tryout from noon to 1 p.m. inside the Mayo Athletic Field House.

Hinds’ Winter Baseball Showcase has been postponed for a second time. It was originally scheduled for earlier this month, moved to Feb. 16, and then on Tuesday postponed indefinitely. No new date was announced.

Hinds’ baseball season opener, meanwhile, has been moved to Vicksburg because of wet conditions at Joe G. Moss Field on campus. The Eagles will play a split doubleheader against Frontier Community College and Mississippi Delta on Friday at Sports Force Parks. The games are scheduled for 3 and 6 p.m.
