The spring sports season got off to a rocky start as several area scrimmages and games were cancelled or postponed due to the cold weather and forecasts anticipating snow Wednesday night.
Tritonâ€™s softball opener with Churubusco was called, as was the Bremen softball scrimmage with Penn.
Todayâ€™s originally-scheduled Bremen boys track meet with Concord was cancelled, while the Lady Lionsâ€™ softball opener with Mishawaka Marian has been postponed from Friday to April 20 at 10 a.m., and the BHS girls track meet at Warsaw Friday was cancelled.
BREMEN â€” Itâ€™s a win-win.
The Chargers will gain a local talent, and Andrew Huff will continue his soccer career close to home as the Bremen senior signed on with Ancilla College recently.
â€śI really appreciate the opportunity Coach (Darren) Gallagher has given me, and being able to play college soccer at Ancilla means so much since I can continue to play close to home,â€ť said Huff.

BOURBON â€” As the 2012-13 season opened, Triton found itself struggling to find a sense of identity.
It made for an up-and-down front end to the year as the Trojans dropped three of their first five games on their way to an 8-5 start, not bad by many teamsâ€™ standards, but still not nearly up to the level of expectations for a program that has become accustomed to championships and high rankings in the weekly AP polls.
Then it hit head coach Jason Groves â€” this yearâ€™s squad would make a name for itself on the defensive end.
