Heavy rain and lightning has not only caused the postponement of Thursday’s action at the Allstate Sugar Bowl LHSAA State Baseball Tournament in Sulphur, but has left LHSAA officials leaving the resumption of the tournament open-ended.

The tournament “has been postponed until further notice,” the LHSAA said in a statement on social media at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday and cited a dire forecast for Friday.

The association said it would have an update on the championships by 7 p.m.

Action got underway in the early games in Classes 1A, 3A and 4A, with no game getting past the fourth inning, before action was halted.

Of the six New Orleans-area teams are involved in the postponed games, only Kentwood began action. Archbishop Rummel, Brother Martin and St. Paul’s in Division I, St. Charles Catholic in Division II and Lakeshore in Class 4A did not begin their games.

Stay with Crescent City Sports for updates to the tournament schedule.
