State softball brackets posted

The WIAA has posted the state softball brackets and I am going to link you to the 4A and 3A tournaments (you can find them all at WIAA.com). There are some very interesting first-round games in both of those tourneys, which run Friday and Saturday at the South End Recreation Area (SERA) in Tacoma.

Here are a couple that jumped out to me: In 4A, Stanwood and Rogers of Puyallup Stanwood square off. A couple of weeks ago, those teams were ranked 2-3 in The Times’ state poll. I’ll be putting out a final set of rankings tomorrow, and Rogers just might be No. 1 (you’ll have to check back to find out). Probably the biggest surprise in 4A is that there will be no Greater Spokane League team here. No sure when that last happened. Walla Walla, Kennewick and Kamiakin (also of Kennewick) swept the East Regional berths.

In 3A, Kennedy (the two-time defending champion) opens with Bainbridge. That’s a tough draw for both teams. Juanita, which just might be No. 1 in 3A tomorrow, takes on a Mount Rainier team that has been playing very well lately.

So, here is the 4A bracket. And here is the 3A bracket.

We’ll be talking more about the tournament this next week, but I’m anxious to hear your thoughts.
