Baseball sectional draw announced

Friday, May 20, 2005

Baseball sectional draws were made on Thursday morning for action beginning on Monday, May 30.

The Northview Knights, currently 17-3 after a two game sweep of Edgewood this week, will get a matchup with Martinsville, a team that was eliminate by eventual champion Mooresville last year. That contest will be the first of the afternoon in the Plainfield Sectional slated to start at noon.

The senior laden Mooresville Pioneers will get a date with Terre Haute South (15-6) in Monday's second contest. If the last meeting is any indication, this one could be another shootout as the Braves outgunned the Pioneers, 24-16 back on April 20.

In that game there were four homeruns and a total of 42 combined hits.

Terre Haute North and Plainfield will face off in the bye bracket game on Wednesday night beginning at 7:30 p.m. Neither team has faced each other and the Quakers haven't played any of the teams in the sectional during the regular season.

The Patriots, currently ranked No. 8 in Class 4A and 15-4 overall, already boast wins over Northview, Mooresville and South this season and will get a crack at Martinsville on May 24.

Over in the Class A Shakamak Sectional, the Lakers are once more the defending champions and are coming off a season in which they advanced to the state championship game before falling to Lafayette Central Catholic, 11-3.

The Clay City Eels will get the unenviable matchup with the Lakers in the opening round this season after defeating Union (Dugger) in last year's first round. Union will not be in this year's sectional.

Bloomfield will face White River Valley in the first matchup with the Eels and host Lakers squaring off in the second scheduled game. North Central gets the bye and will face the winner between the Cardinals and Wolverines.
