By Dennis Dunn


All three county baseball teams to begin postseason play on the road this year when the sectionals begin later in May. The IHSAA revealed all sectional pairings on Sunday, March 28 and all schools learned their fate.

All records posted are as of March 29.

Salem (5-7, 0-4) will play in the Class 3A Sectional 30 at North Harrison and they will play the first game against Madison. Charlestown will play the host school North Harrison in game two and Scottsburg will battle with Silver Creek in game three. Corydon Central drew the bye and will play the Salem-Madison winner.

Last season Silver Creek defeated Scottsburg in the sectional championship.

The Lions are 0-3 this season against sectional opponents as they have losses to Madison, Scottsburg and North Harrison.

Eastern (2-7, 1-2) will open up the Class 2A Sectional 46 at Clarksville against Paoli. Providence will play Crawford County and Clarksville will play the winner of the Eastern-Paoli game.

Providence defeated Clarksville in the sectional finals a year ago.

The Musketeers are 0-1 against sectional opponents as they have only played Providence, which resulted in a loss.

West Washington (7-4, 3-1) will play in the Class A Sectional at South Central and will play Borden in game one. Lanesville will play Rock Creek in the second game. Christian Academy will play South Central in the bye game.

Borden defeated West Washington a year ago in the sectional finals and they will play in the first game this year.
