GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
The Coastal Carolina softball team's two scheduled games for Sunday at the Lipton Invitational have been cancelled due to thunderstorms.
The games against Indiana and top-ranked Florida will not be made up.
The Chanticleers' contest against Indiana scheduled for 10:45 a.m. had not started prior to lightning strikes in the area suspended Indiana's game versus Troy in the ninth inning at approximately 11 a.m.
Heavy rain began falling shortly after as the storm moved through Gainesville and was continuing when the decision to end the Troy-Indiana game in a tie and cancel Coastal's two games was made.
The Chants return to action next weekend as they host the Coastal Carolina Invitational, beginning with games against Marshall and Maryland Eastern Shore on Friday at 2 and 4 p.m.
