Weather leads to high school sports postponements



ELLSWORTH — Inclement weather caused the postponements of several games throughout Hancock County on Thursday and Friday.

Ellsworth’s home baseball and softball games against George Stevens Academy were pushed back from 2 p.m. Thursday to 4:30 p.m. April 27. The games were originally scheduled to be the home openers for the Eagles, but Ellsworth will instead open at home against Hermon at noon tomorrow, April 22. These will be varsity games only; JV will be made up at a later date.

Thursday’s baseball and softball games between Bucksport and Mount Desert Island in Bar Harbor were moved to today, April 21. The games will be played at 4:30 p.m. and will be the home openers for the Trojans.

Elsewhere, this week’s outdoor track meet at Hampden Academy has been moved from noon today to the same time tomorrow. It will be the first meet of the season for Ellsworth, Bucksport and GSA.
