HHS softball heads to the Region 6 tournament in Strasburg Saturday, Oct. 13, where the local girls will meet Strasburg at 10 a.m.
Faith Christian will play Dolores Huerta at 12:15 p.m. The winners of those games will meet for the championship at 2:30 p.m. and will then advance to the state tourney bracket. The losers of the games will be done for the season.
It was a disappointing end of the regular season for the Lady Dragons, when their Homecoming doubleheader with Akron on Saturday, Oct. 6 was canceled due to the snow.
Without those two games, the Dragons ended their regular season with an 8-9 record.
From the 34 teams playing 3A softball, 24 advance to six regional tourneys Saturday. Two teams from each regional will move on to the state tournament Oct. 19-20 in Aurora.
Holyoke’s 8-9 record ranks the team at #20. In Region 6, Strasburg (15-3) is ranked fifth, Faith Christian (13-5) is ranked eighth and Dolores Huerta (9-7) is ranked 17th in the 24-team regional brackets.
Regional host teams are #1 Burlington (18-0), #2 Rocky Ford (18-1), #3 Holy Family (15-3), #4 Valley (15-4), #5 Strasburg (15-3) and #7 Basalt (13-6).
