Softball, tennis pairings released

A field of 355 will begin play May 20 in the 18th annual IHSAA Girls Softball Tournament. This is the fifth year the tourney will be conducted in a three-class format.
The tournament format again calls for 16 sectionals in each of the three classes. Sectional play is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 20, at sites determined by the center school, and conclude by Saturday, May 25. Because of possible weather postponements and other conflicts, it is advisable to check with the host school for precise day and time schedules.
Tickets prices for the sectionals will be $4.00 per session, $7.00 season.
On Monday at 2A Charlestown, Providence takes on the host school at 6 p.m., followed by a clash between rivals North Harrison and Corydon Central at 8. Game three, on Tuesday, will be Silver Creek versus Eastern at 6 and game four will be at 8 and have Crawford County squaring off against Salem.
The winners from Monday’s action play each other on Wednesday at 6, and the winners from Tuesday’s games battle at 8. The championship will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday night.
At 1A Clarksville, the heavily-favored and undefeated Lady Generals of Clarksville will entertain New Washington at 5 p.m. on Monday. On Tuesday afternoon at 4:30, Austin plays South Central. That tilt will be followed by Graceland Christian versus Henryville at about 6:30.
On Wednesday, Lanesville plays the winner of Monday’s game at 4:30 and Tuesday’s victors will play at 6:30. The championship will be held on Thursday at 5 p.m.

County softball tilt cancelled for 2002
Mother Nature must be a football fan.
With the near-daily rains the area has received over the past two months, scheduling has become a nightmare for athletic directors.
Open dates are at a premium as AD’s try to reschedule more rained out games. The latest event to take a hit is the Harrison County Softball Tournament.
The tourney was supposed to originally take place on April 20, however it was washed out early in the day. The next scheduled date was May 16, however more rain has forced schools to use that day for other conference games.
