MSU's Matchup with Cameron Pushed Back

The start of Midwestern State's slated three-game Lone Star Conference North Division series against Cameron has been pushed back a day due to forecasted severe weather.
 
The Mustangs and Aggies will still play a doubleheader Saturday afternoon at 1 and 3 p.m., but the originally scheduled single game will be pushed from Friday back to Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. All games are set for Mustangs Park.
 
A wind advisory is in effect for the Wichita Falls area from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Friday. Winds will turn from the south at 25 to 35 mph, and frequent gusts to 50 mph are also possible.
 
The National Weather Service urges care if you have to travel or if you are working and playing outside.
 
Senior Day festivities will be held in between games of the twin bill on Saturday.
