GREENSBORO, N.C. - Recent snow and ice forced the cancellation of Saturday's Guilford College men's lacrosse match with Berry College and altered the schedules of many other Guilford teams.

The Quakers and Vikings were slated to meet on Appenzeller Field in the Armfield Athletic Center Saturday at 1 p.m. The contest was moved back to a 7:00 p.m. start with hopes Saturday's warmer weather would accelerate the snow-removal process. The snow and ice proved stronger however, and the game was cancelled. Guilford entertains Greensboro College Monday (3/10) night at 7:00 p.m. in a contest rescheduled from February.

Guilford's women's lacrosse match with Wittenberg University, scheduled for a 4:00 p.m. start, has been pushed back to Sunday (3/9) with a 1:00 p.m. opening draw.

Guilford's baseball team will play twice at Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) rival Shenandoah University Sunday (3/9) instead of Saturday. First pitch in Winchester, Va., is 1:00 p.m. The Quakers' contest with league-foe Lynchburg College, scheduled for March 9, will be played March 12 at 3:00 p.m. on Guilford's Edgar McBane Field.

The Quakers' softball team hoped to host Bridgewater College Saturday in a league doubleheader. Those games have been moved to April 16 beginning at 3:00 p.m. on Guilford's Haworth Field.
