Let’s play some softball!
Bad weather might have disrupted the baseball sectionals so far this week, but the odds are good the Region 3 softball semifinals today at Shady Spring, Coal City, Lindside and Montcalm will get played.
Each winner will advance to the finals next Thursday, with a trip to the state tournament in Vienna on the line.
-- Section 1 winner Shady Spring will host Section 2 champ Greenbrier East at 4 p.m. in one Class AAA semifinal. South Charleston (Section 3) is at home against Ripley (4) in the other.
-- Westside (2) visits Independence (1), and James Monroe (4) hosts Mount View (3) in 5 p.m. Class AA battles.
-- Fayetteville (2) travels to Mercer County at 5 p.m. to face Montcalm (1) in Class A. Sherman (3) is at Man (4).
Finals will be held at the home field of the winners of the Section 3 vs. Section 4 games.
States are May 22-23 at Jackson Park in Vienna. The tournament is a two-day, double-elimination format. Region 3 teams will play in the second games of the opening session.
Shady Spring represented Region 3 in Class AA four of the past six seasons, but now competes in Class AAA. Fayetteville has gone to states five of the past six years.
