THS baseball draws Piper in first round of regionals
The Chieftain baseball team will see a familiar foe in the first round of its Class 4A regional.
THS, the No. 7 seed in the Bishop Ward regional, will face No. 2 Piper at 7 p.m. Monday at Eisenhower Field. The Chieftains (5-15) dropped a pair of games to the Pirates (14-6) on April 18.
If THS wins, it will face the winner of No. 3 Atchison (11-6) and No. 6 Bishop Ward (10-9) in Tuesday's semifinal. The Chieftains suffered back-to-back losses against Bishop Ward in their season opener on March 26. They have not faced Atchison this season.
The regional title game will be at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. The winner will earn a spot in the Class 4A state tournament, which begins May 25 in Salina.
