NATCHITOCHES — The Northwestern State softball team will have to wait another week to open its season. The Lady Demons’ three-game series against Tarleton State was canceled due to inclement weather in the region.

The series was set to be played at Parc Natchitoches on Friday with a doubleheader at 1 and 3 p.m.. The series’ finale was to take place at the Lady Demons Diamond on Saturday at 1 p.m.

NSU will now begin its season on the road at the Gettermen Classic in Waco, Texas. The Lady Demos are slated to play Prairie View A&M on Friday at 10 a.m.

The tournament also provides Northwestern State with the opportunity to play a couple power-five opponents in Baylor and Missouri, respectively.
