Many wins playoff opener, aims for series win at home Saturday; Florien softball on road

The Many High School baseball team took a 1-0 victory Thursday evening over Jewel Sumner, and needs another win Saturday afternoon at home to capture the LHSAA Non-Select Division III first-round playoff series.

First pitch is 1 o’clock for the second game in a best-of-three series. If Jewel Sumner squares the series with a victory in game two, the teams will play the deciding third game at 4 p.m. Saturday.

Many is seeded 15th. Jewel Sumner is 18th.

Florien’s softball team plays a state quarterfinal game at Hicks Saturday at 1. Florien is the third seed in Non-Select Division V and Hicks is No. 11. Florien got a first-round bye and hammered No. 14 Monterey 12-2 on Tuesday in the second round. One more win puts Florien in the state tournament next weekend in Sulphur.

The Converse baseball team is seeded second in the Non-Select Division V bracket and will face No. 18 Reeves in a second-round game next week.
