Section II wasted little time in getting their spring tournaments underway this year with some schools playing on the same day that pairings were announced. This afternoon first round games in softball will be played in Class B and C, while second round baseball contests will also play out in those classifications.
Three Wasaren Class C baseball squads advanced with W’s in round one on Tuesday. #9 Greenwich throttled #8 Bishop Gibbons 15-1 with Bailey Winch picking up the mound victory throwing five innings allowing three hits and one run. The Witches will travel to Rensselaer today to take on the top seeded Rams.
