State tournament matchups set for baseball

SITKA-After this weekend's last high school softball and baseball games the conference and state tournament seedings are set. We start with baseball as the ASAA First National Bank Alaska State Baseball Tournament starts this Thursday at Moller Park at Sitka High School.

The Lathrop Malemutes, who won their third straight MAC title on Friday night with an 8-5 win over West Valley, will play Colony at 10 am on Thursday. Colony finished fourth in the state tourney last year and is the second place South Central Conference team.

The winner of the game will face the Juneau/South winner. South is the defending state champions and Juneau finished third last year.

On the opposite side of the bracket West Valley will go up against the Wasilla Warriors the SCC Champs. That game is at 1 on Thursday. The winner will get Eagle River or state tournament host Sitka.
