Waynesville soccer plays one half, wins 6-0

Well, NOW spring decides to rear its ugly head.

After a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather, Mother Nature has struck back with a fury this week.

And area sports events were, as always, affected.

The chief casualty was the Waynesville High School track meet Friday at Waynesville Middle School’s Slaughter Field.

It’s the second time this season a meet Waynesville was scheduled to host has been rained out.

This meet was to feature area teams like Iberia, Dixon, Newburg, Rolla and Camdenton, as well as out-of area teams like West Plains and Fulton.

It is unknown if the meet will be rescheduled.

In the meantime, the Tigers will compete in the Missouri State Aldo Sebben Relays on Monday.

A few baseball games were also cancelled.

Dixon’s baseball game at Fatima and the Waynesville freshman baseball game were both postponed and should be rescheduled.

The WHS soccer team did get to play its opening-round game in the West Plains tournament— a half of it.

The Tigers beat Mountain View-Liberty 6-0 in a game that was called after a half due to lightning.

WHS continues tournament play tomorrow.

They take on Springfield Greenwood at 8:30 a.m. and St. Louis Notre Dame at 3 p.m.
