A storm wiped out Newton High’s final regular-season baseball game Tuesday night.
The Cardinals were to have played against South Tama in Tama but a rainstorm came through the Tama area and flooded the baseball field. Newton (2-27) opens Class 3A District 11 postseason play on Friday. They play No. 3 Marion in the second game of a district doubleheader hosted by Marion.
South Tama plays Bondurant-Farrar at 5 p.m. followed by Newton taking on Marion at 7 p.m. The 3A District 11 championship game is Monday at Marion.
