UMC was originally scheduled to begin Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference play today in Crookston with a doubleheader against Bemidji State, but that doubleheader has been moved to Thursday at 6 and 8 p.m. at the Irish Sports Dome in Rosemount, Minn. Field conditions at the UMC Softball Field due to a heavy amount of snow that has hit the Crookston area this winter has made the field unplayable at the current time.
