Sporting activities had to take a back seat to weather conditions yesterday. The Siuslaw Vikings were to begin their seasons of baseball and softball against Marist Catholic in Eugene, but inclement weather put a halt to that. The games were temporarily moved to Florence to try to get the games in but ultimately were cancelled, or more accurately postponed, according to Siuslaw Athletic Director Chris Johnson. The games are currently re-scheduled for this evening at 5pm at Marist.
