Many Tigers head south in baseball playoffs; Converse home Thursday, Florien girls head to state Friday

After a hard-fought pair of one-run wins last weekend, the Many Tigers baseball team heads down U.S. 171 for the second round of the LHSAA Division I Non-Select playoffs.

Many, seeded 15th, goes to South Beauregard to face the No. 2 team in the playoff bracket, in a best-of-three series. The teams play Friday evening at 6, then Saturday at 1, and if the third game is needed to settle the series, it is slated for 3:30 Saturday. The winner goes to the state quarterfinals.

Many advanced with home-field wins over No. 18 Jewel Sumner, 1-0 and 3-2, last weekend.

In the Non-Select Division IV tournament, second-seeded Converse hosts No. 18 Reeves Thursday at 5 in a single-elimination second-round contest. Converse had a first-round bye.

The Florien Ladycats lived up to their No. 3 seeding in the Non-Select Division IV softball bracket, scoring a 12-4 victory Saturday at Hicks to earn a trip to Sulphur for the LHSAA state tournament. Florien plays at noon Friday on Field 14 against No. 2-ranked Quitman, with the winner advancing to Saturday’s state championship game.
