FAIRBANKS-It's Day one of the ASAA First National Bank Alaska State Softball tournament at the Cartee Fields in Anchorage. Rough first games for Hutchison and North Pole in the small schools state tournament.
The Hawks lost Homer 17-1 and North Pole was blown out by Kethcikan in a 27-0.
But it's a double elimination tournament so both teams have another chance. Hutch will play either Ketchikan or Kodiak and North Pole will face Homer or Juneau.
