---- — Staff Report

Oneonta High’s baseball team will have two chances to get back on track Saturday.

The Yellowjackets will travel to play Windsor (3-0) at noon Saturday and then return home for a 4:30 p.m. game against Seton Catholic Central.

OHS was scheduled to play the defending Class C state champion Saints on Friday, but that game was postponed by wet conditions, as was the rest of Friday’s high school schedule.

Oneonta (1-2) is coming off back-to-back losses since opening the season with a 3-0 victory over Johnson City on April 3. The Yellowjackets lost, 8-1, to Owego on Wednesday and then fell, 15-1, to Chenango Forks on Thursday.

Other baseball games postponed Friday were: Sidney at Delhi (moved to Monday); Harpursville at Unatego (to Thursday); Edmeston at Gilbertsville-Mount Upton (to April 21); Franklin at Morris (to May 8); Schenevus at Laurens (to May 9); Cherry Valley-Springfield at Richfield Springs; Afton at Unadilla Valley; and Bainbridge-Guilford at Walton.

One of the softball games scheduled for Friday had a makeup date as Schenevus will visit Laurens on May 9. The other postponed games were: Seton at Oneonta High; Edmeston at G-MU; Afton at UV; Morris at Franklin; CV-S at Richfield Springs; Harpursville at Unatego; and B-G at Walton.

Oneonta’s home tennis match against Chenango Forks also was postponed. It has not yet been rescheduled.
