Post-season enters high gear Monday

FAIRDALE - Baseball and softball will both start playing for keeps on Monday as the 24th District Tournaments get underway at Fairdale High School.

In baseball, the final bracket was not decided until last Wednesday when Southern beat North Bullitt 13-2. That gave the number one seed to Bullitt East while North Bullitt will be number two with Southern third.

Bullitt East has won five straight district titles including the past four in the 24th District. The Chargers are the only team in this field ranked among the top-25 teams in the state.

In softball, North Bullitt will be looking to repeat the title it won last year when it beat Southern in the final. Like baseball, there was a three-way tie at the top and the tie-breaker easily favored North Bullitt based on a 16-0 victory over Southern.  Bullitt East is number two with Southern third.

Teams with the better seed position will be the home team in each game.
