Regional softball tournament features Baldwin County teams

Eight county teams finished in top two of area, take one step closer to state tournaments

Posted

Eight local high school softball teams, half of which claimed area championships, advanced to the AHSAA regional tournament that started earlier this week.

The two representatives in the lower classifications – Class 1A’s Bayshore Christian and Class 2A’s Orange Beach – will both compete with the same teams they saw in last year’s regional bracket, just with different seeding.

This year, the Eagles from Bayshore Christian went in as the Area 1 runners-up and drew the Area 4 winner Sweet Water Bulldogs.


The Class 2A Area 1 champion – and defending Class 2A state champion – Makos from Orange Beach opened their regional round with a meeting against Area 4 runner-up Washington County Bulldogs.

On the Class 4A stage, the St. Michael Catholic Cardinals kicked off their regional bracket as the area runners-up against the Area 4 champion Jackson Aggies Tuesday.

The Elberta Warriors claimed the Class 5A Area 1 Championship and met with the Charles Henderson Trojans, the Area 4 runners-up, Wednesday.

In Class 6A, the Area 2 champions, Baldwin County Tigers, and runners-up, Robertsdale Golden Bears, started their regional brackets Tuesday morning. Baldwin County drew the Area 3 runner-up Lanier Poets and Robertsdale met with the area champion Park Crossing Thunderbirds.

After Fairhope and Daphne battled for the Class 7A Area 2 championship, the Pirates – who went all the way to the state championship game last year – staked claim to the championship seed and drew the Area 3 runner-up Enterprise Wildcats in the first round of regionals. The Trojans from Daphne opened their regional round against the Prattville Lions, who won Area 3.
