BOONEVILLE – Softball rivals ICC and Northeast will be battling more than each other in today’s double-header at Booneville City Park.
The Lady Indians and Lady Tigers will battle in the StrikeOut Cancer fund-raiser, a doubleheader to raise money for breast cancer awareness programs in the area. The game was originally scheduled for March 12 but was moved due to inclement weather.
ICC (16-17, 8-2) can move into a tie for the North Division lead with a sweep today. First pitch is at 3 p.m.
East Mississippi (12-25, 8-2), which visits Northeast on Friday, is alone in first place after a sweep of Northwest on Tuesday.
Northeast (7-21, 3-5) is coming off a split with Holmes on Tuesday.
