The Winnfield Senior High softball team goes to South Beauregard for a second-round LHSAA playoff game today at 5:30, while the Calvin softball team’s season has been ended.

The TIgerettes blasted Mansfield at home Monday 10-0 in five innings in a first-round Non-Select Division III game.

Calvin’s girls had a stirring 13-3 homefield victory Monday over Castor, but fell on the road in the second round Tuesday, 16-10 at seventh-seeded Stanley, ending hopes for a third straight state championship.

The LHSAA announced its baseball playoff brackets Tuesday.

The Winnfield Tigers got a first-round bye in the Non-Select Division III bracket. They will play a three-game series at home next week (dates to be determined, between April 25-29) against the winner of the first-round series this weekend between No. 9 Westlake and No. 24 Church Point.

Calvin’s 12th-seeded Bulldogs open the Non-Select Division V playoffs at home Saturday at 1, hosting No. 21 Holden. The winner will go to second-seeded South Beauregard next week in the second round.

Divisions IV and V have retained the single-elimination brackets used previously while Divisions I, II and III are now playing three-game series in the first three rounds leading to the semifinals.
