It looks like Penn softball is going to wait a little bit longer to kick off its 2014 season.
As snow, vicious wind and cold weather blanketed Philadelphia on Monday, the Quakers’ season opening doubleheader against St. Joseph’s - initially scheduled for Tuesday - has been postponed.
No makeup date has been announced for the matchup between the cross-town rivals.
Regardless, the postponement means that Penn will not begin its season until this Friday. The Red and Blue are scheduled to take on Troy in the UCF Spring Fling tournament in Florida on Friday afternoon before going up against Western Carolina later that evening.
So even though the Quakers won’t be playing in their scheduled season opener on Tuesday, at least the team will get to enjoy the sunshine of Florida in exchange.
