Softball: Playoff Brackets Set

The unbeaten Sherwood High School softball team (16-0) has been named the top seed in the 4A North region of the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association state championship tournament. The Warriors were the top seed in 4A West last year, but their season ended with an 8-6 loss to second seeded Blair, this year’s 4A West top-seed, in the regional final.

Another Montgomery County School, Damascus, is seeded first in the 3A West region.

The regional tournaments begin with first round games on Thursday. Weather permitting, the winners of Thursday’s first round games will play in the region quarterfinals on Monday.

The state semifinals will be held at the Bachman Softball Complex in Glen Burnie on May 22nd, and the finals will be held at Robert E. Taylor Stadium on the campus of the University of Maryland College Park on May 25th and 26th.
