Fort Frye's baseball team is hoping to get another crack at Shenandoah, and may if it takes care of business in Ohio Division III postseason competition.
Shenandoah, of course, will need to do the same.
The Sonny Bidwell-coached Cadets, who own a 12-4 record, are scheduled to face Barnesville in an opening-round sectional tournament game at 11 a.m. Saturday at Don Coss Field in Cambridge. Following that contest at 1 p.m., the Kevin Davis-led Zeps (10-2) are slated to play Belmont Union Local.
If both the Cadets and Zeps win, they'll square off at 5 p.m. next Thursday in Cambridge.
Fort Frye and Shenandoah last met on the diamond in an Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Class 2-A championship game at Steubenville's Vaccaro Field on April 30.
The Cadets, who defeated the Zeps earlier in the season in a Pioneer Valley Conference contest, dropped a 5-3 decision in the OVAC title tilt.
Also on Saturday at 4 p.m. in Cambridge, Monroe Central is slated to take on Zanesville West Muskingum in a sectional opener. The winner advances, while the loser goes home.
Belpre (14-2) opens up sectional play against the Crooksville-Southeastern winner at Civitan Park at 5 p.m. May 13.
Look for Tyler Watkins or Clay Ullman to throw for the Golden Eagles.
In Division IV baseball tourney play at 2 p.m. Saturday at Tuscora Park, Caldwell is scheduled to play Strasburg-Franklin. Frontier won't be on the postseason diamond until 6 p.m. Monday when it squares off against River at Bridgeport High.
And, at 5 p.m. May 12, Waterford will be pitted against host St. Joseph.
At 5 p.m. Monday in Vincent, Marietta High (6-10) will also be in action against host Warren (10-4) in a Division II sectional lid-lifter.
The Mark Farr-coached-Warriors defeated the Tigers twice during Southeastern Ohio Athletic Conference play, including a 6-3 triumph in Vincent this past Monday.
With the setback, MHS, which is guided by co-skippers' Jim Thrash and Larry Burke, had a three-game winning streak snapped.
Cole Hupp or Eli Lenington is expected to toe the rubber for the Tigers, while Tyler Proctor may get the nod for the Warriors.
Postseason softball action will also be on tap Saturday when Shenandoah plays Buckeye Trail in a Division III opener at 1 p.m. in Cambridge.
In Division IV, Frontier will be taking on Bridgeport at 5 p.m. at Shadyside, and Caldwell goes up against Berlin Hiland at a time to be announced at Strasburg Franklin Park.
Waterford (5-8) will be at host Green at 1 p.m. May 14.
Righty Tana Wallace is expected to start on the hill for the Doug Baldwin-coached Lady Wildcats.
Back to Division III, Barb Sleek-coached Fort Frye is slated to face W. Lafayette Ridgewood at 5 p.m. Monday in Cambridge, while Monroe Central faces Martins Ferry at 6 p.m. on the same day at St. Clairsville.
Look for righty-handed ace Victoria Mimken to toe the rubber for the Lady Cadets (15-4).
Kenny Cox-led Belpre is scheduled to host May 11's Trimble-Federal Hocking winner at 1 p.m. May 14.
In Division II, John Doughty-coached Marietta High (3-15) will be hosting Vinton County at 5 p.m. Monday.
The Tigers-Vikings winner will visit Gallia Academy at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Maggie Harrison will probably be the Lady Tigers' starting hurler.
Also on Wednesday at the same time, Sheila Coffman -led Warren (15-1) will be entertaining Athens in a first-round game.
Coffman will probably go with either Taylor Dennis or Molly Powell on the hill.
