WEBSTER CITY — Officially, Webster City will play baseball and softball this summer. Officially, the teams now know what their month-long journeys will look like too.

Schedules were released for both teams yesterday afternoon. The Lynx baseball team has 14 games on its docket — eight at home and six on the road. The Lynx softball squad will play 13 games — five at home and eight on the road.

All dates will be junior varsity and varsity games. Junior varsity baseball games have 5:30 p.m. start times, with the varsity to follow at approximately 7:30 p.m. Junior varsity softball games will begin at 6 p.m., also with varsity contests at approximately 7:30 p.m.

WCHS athletic director Joe Shanks and head softball coach Jess Howard were in agreement that removing weekend tournaments was the right course of action to ease novel coronavirus concerns. The Lynx were originally scheduled to take part in tournaments hosted by Roland-Story and Martensdale St. Marys over the final month of the season; the Roland-Story tournament was canceled, while WCHS removed itself from the Martensdale St. Marys event.

Both Lynx squads will open up on the road against North Central Conference rival Hampton-Dumont/CAL on June 15.

WCHS will play each conference foe once in the races for league championships. The Lynx softball team will play Algona a second time as part of its non-conference slate. The Lynx baseball team will play Algona, Hampton-Dumont/CAL and Humboldt twice, but only the initial meetings will count towards the league standings.

Other non-conference opponents for the WCHS softball team include Boone, Eagle Grove, Fort Dodge, Algona Garrigan and Carlisle.

Other non-conference opponents for the WCHS baseball team include Boone, Ballard, Nevada and Coon Rapids-Bayard.

Practices will get under way on June 1.
