Leo and South Adams will be looking to extend their softball seasons another round as the IHSAA unveiled its 2017 state tournament draw Friday on www.ihsaatv.org.
The Lions (Class 4A) and Starfires (2A) both fell in the semifinals of their respective semistates a year ago. Leo lost 3-1 to Munster at the Harrison Semistate, while South Adams fell 9-0 to Madison-Grant at LaVille.
In their quest to get back to the semistate – and beyond – the No. 9 Lions will open the Carroll Sectional against Northrop, and the No. 8 Starfires will play host to Adams Central.
The sectionals are scheduled for May 22-27.
For other ranked area teams, 3A No. 6 Wawasee plays host to Lakeland in an opener, 3A No. 14 Bellmont opens with Marion at Norwell, 3A No. 15 Angola hosts a sectional and plays Bishop Dwenger in the first game and 2A No. 10 Whitko has a bye game at Oak Hill against either the host Eagles or Southwood.
