HAMMOND, La. – With heavy rain overnight, Southeast Louisiana pushes back the first course on Saturday’s Southland Conference double header against Abilene Christian for a few hours. The first game is now scheduled for 3pm at Pat Kenelly Diamond at Alumni Field.
Despite a series opener loss Friday against ACU (17-11, 9-8 Southland), the Lions (18-11, 11-6 Southland) remain in first place in the conference table with a narrow, half-lead over second-place New Orleans ( 16-14, 11-7 Southland).
Sunday’s series final against the wildcats remains as originally planned.
