UPDATE: Northpoint games rescheduled

Rain in Murfreesboro, Tennesse, the site of the TSSAA Spring Fling series of state tournaments and state meets, Thursday postponed the scheduled Division II-A state baseball championship round between Northpoint Christian School and Goodpasture Christian. In fact, all of Thursday’s state baseball games were postponed due to rain in the Murfreesboro area.

Northpoint qualified for its second straight state championship appearance Wednesday night with a 12-5 victory over Grace Christian Academy of Franklin, Tenn. Goodpasture defeated Grace Christian 9-3 earlier Wednesday to stay unbeaten and reach the finals.

In the double-elimination format, Northpoint with one loss must defeat Goodpasture twice to win the TSSAA championship.

TSSAA officials late Thursday announced the games have rescheduled for 1 pm Friday at Middle Tennessee Christian School. A second game would immediately follow if needed.
