Most district softball games have been put on halt due to storms and rain.
On Thursday morning, five Class A district sites — A-1 hosted by Papillion-La Vista, A-2 hosted by Elkhorn, A-3 hosted by Omaha Marian, A-4 hosted by Gretna and A-5 hosted by Millard South — quickly pushed games to Saturday.
A-6 and A-7 soon followed after school officials ironed out some logistical issues.
Doris Bair Athletic Complex, the original host of the A-6 and A-7 tournaments, is not available Saturday because of a big club tournament.
The A-6 district, hosted by Lincoln North Star, will finish Saturday at University Place Park. Millard West and Fremont will play at 11 a.m. and North Star will play the winner at 1 p.m. A third game will follow if necessary.
The A-7 district, hosted by Lincoln Southwest, will move, too. Saturday's games will be at Papillion-La Vista South High School, with Papio South hosting North Platte in an elimination game. The winner will play Southwest at 3 p.m. and a third game will follow if necessary.
Lincoln East is in the A-3 district and will play Omaha Marian at noon Saturday.

C-1 (hosted by Arlington), C-4 (Hastings St. Cecilia), C-5 (Pierce) and C-6 (Kearney Catholic) also were postponed. The C-3 district at Fairbury started Thursday, but came to a stop after a couple of games.
The C-2 district in Blue Springs was moved to Hannibal Park in Beatrice, and then suspended midway through a game between Freeman and Southern/Diller-Odell.
Lines of storms moved across the eastern half of the state all morning, including a strong line hitting the Omaha metro area, dropping a lot of rain and making fields unplayable.
Friday's forecast calls for chilly temperatures and wind. With Saturday's forecast expected to be better than Friday's (dry, some sun and temperatures in the 50s), schools have opted to wait two days to complete district games.
The Class B district finals, originally scheduled for Friday, will take place Saturday, too.
The state tournament starts Wednesday in Hastings.
