Multiple Teams · Lady Bears draw Alexandria in sectional opener

2017 IHSAA Softball Pairings were released last night and the Lady Bears will play the first game of Class 2A Sectional 40 at Frankton.

Monday, May 22 at 5 p.m. the Lady Bears (5-6) will face Alexandria (5-10) with game two pitting Wapahani (7-7) against 14th ranked Shenandoah (7-4).

Tuesday, May 23 16th ranked Lapel (7-6) will take on Frankton (5-7) along with Monday’s winners in the semi-finals and the championship is set for Thursday, May 25 at 5 p.m.

The Lady Bears meeting with Alexandria that was set for May 15 had to be cancelled so the Tigers could make up a conference game. MC still has meetings with Wapahani (Monday, May 1) and Shenandoah (May 19).

The Lady Bears currently lead the MEC so Monday’s game with Wapahani could determine the front-runner to win the conference title. It will be a big week for Monroe Central as they also open County on Wednesday against host Winchester.

MEC records and overall records of teams are below:

Monroe Central 3-0, 5-6

Wapahani 2-0, 7-7

Wes-Del 1-2, 5-7

Union 1-2, n/a

Daleville 0-1, 3-4

Cowan 0-2, 2-8

Randolph Southern 0-2, 3-11
