CLASS 3A NORTH HARRISON SECTIONAL
The North Harrison Sectional is expected to be one of the most competitive sectionals in Class 3A. The field includes three teams ranked in the latest Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association Class 3A top-10 poll.
Two-time defending sectional champion Silver Creek (18-6) received the only first-round bye in the sectional. The Class 3A No. 5 Dragons will face the winner of next Wednesday’s sectional opener between North Harrison and Salem in the first semifinal at 11 a.m. on the 27th.
Class 3A No. 6 Charlestown (18-6) will take on Scottsburg in the second first-round contest at approximately 7:30 p.m. on May 23. The winner of that game will play either Class 3A No. 8 Brownstown Central or Corydon Central, which received honorable-mention votes in the 3A poll, in the second semi at 1:30 p.m. on the 27th.
The championship game will be at 7 p.m. on the 27th.
CLASS 2A PROVIDENCE SECTIONAL
A rematch of last year’s Class 2A Providence Sectional final between the host Pioneers (15-7) and Eastern highlights this year’s Class 2A sectional.
Providence and the defending sectional champion Musketeers will meet in the second semi at about 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. Eastern defeated the Pioneers in last year’s sectional final, 6-5.
The teams met each other on April 2 at Eastern with the Pioneers coming out on top 11-2.
Henryville (13-6) and Clarksville will have their own sectional rematch at about 7 p.m. next Wednesday as they will meet in the second first-round game. The sectional opener will be at 5 p.m. next Wednesday when Paoli takes on Crawford County. The first-round winners will square off in the first semifinal at 11 a.m. on the 25th.
The Generals rolled past the Hornets in last year’s first-round sectional contest in five innings, 12-1. But Henryville swept a home doubleheader versus Clarksville on April 13 by scores of 10-1 and 16-6.
The sectional final will be at 7:30 p.m. on the 25th.
