Lady Pacer Sectional softball action here


Sectional softball action for Coach Steven Konkle and his Switzerland County Lady Pacers opens this Monday, May 23rd. Class 2A Sectional #45 will be played right here on the Switzerland County field, and a big crowd is expected to cheer the Lady Pacers on.

The first game on Monday night will feature South Ripley versus Austin at 5:30 p.m.; and that game will be followed by North Decatur against Southwestern at approximately 7:30 p.m.

On Tuesday night, May 24th, the first game at 5:30 p.m. will see the winner of the South Ripley/Austin game play the winner of the North Decatur/Southwestern game at 5:30 p.m.; with the Lady Pacers finally getting on the field after drawing the bye when they play Milan at approximately 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night.

On Thursday, May 26th, the Sectional championship game will see the two Tuesday winners vying for a spot in the Regional, with the first pitch set for 6 p.m.

The softball tournament is a little different than others, as the host of the Regional shifts back and forth, with the winners from even-numbered Sectionals hosting one game Regionals on even-numbered years; with the odd-numbered Sectional winners hosting on odd-numbered years.

Since the Switzerland County Sectional is #45, the winner will travel to the school that wins Sectional #46 on Tuesday, May 31st. Teams involved in that Sectional include: Paoli, Clarksville, Providence, Henryville, Eastern Pekin, and Crawford County.

The Regional winner then moves on to Semistate action, which will be held at Forest Park High School on Saturday, June 4th; with the State Finals set to be played at Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
