Converse softball, Many baseball carry Sabine banner in playoffs; Tigers home Thursday, Saturday

Unlike in basketball, few Sabine Parish teams qualified for the softball and baseball LHSAA playoffs.

Thursday, the Many Tigers baseball team, seeded 15th in Non-Select Division III, begins a three-game series against No. 18 Jewel Sumner. This year, teams in Divisions I, II and III play three-game series in the first three rounds, while schools in Divisions IV and V continue to follow the traditional single-elimination format. Many’s series opener is Thursday at 5 and the second, and if needed, third games will be held Saturday at MHS, set to begin at 1 and 4.

Converse is seeded No. 2 in the softball Non-Select Division V bracket and got a first-round bye. The winner of 15th-seeded Kilbourne and No. 18 Reeves will travel to Converse for a second-round game to be arranged.

The Many Lady Tigers were not able to defend their state championship from last spring. Many drew a No. 8 seeding and blasted Avoyelles 20-10 in five innings last Fridasy, but Tuesday were topped 4-2 by No. 9 Pine Prairie.
