DUNCAN — Rain checks were written all over Stephens County Tuesday, as rainy and windy conditions along with the chance of thunderstorms led to numerous cancellations of games in the area.

The Duncan golf team had been scheduled to host its first tournament of the season at the Territory, but decided to cancel the event Monday. No plans to reschedule have been made.

Comanche had been slated to host a track meet including a handful of local teams, but Mother Nature forced the school to move the event to Friday, April 12.

In the world of baseball, Duncan opted for a doubleheader against Carl Albert Monday instead of its initial plans – hosting the Titans Monday and traveling to Carl Albert Tuesday.

A day after its 14 game winning streak came to a close, the Marlow baseball team cancelled its road matchup at Cache. No make up date has been decided. Empire High did all it could to make its game happen, agreeing to travel to Ryan for its game, but the Bulldogs’ game was also rained out.

Local rivals Waurika and Central High’s baseball team had been penciled in for 6 p.m., but also called the game off. The contest has not yet been rescheduled.
