County teams win in softball regionals
Prescott and Spring Valley's high school softball teams advanced through the first round of their respective regional tournaments Thursday.
Prescott, a No. 5 seed in its Division 3 regional edged No. 4 seeded Durand at Arkansaw by a 3-2 score. Only a week ago Prescott was beaten up by the Panthers in a doubleheader sweep. Now the Cardinals will move to Tuesday's regional semifinal against No. 3 ranked Elk Mound, the top seed in the bracket.
Spring Valley won at Cornell 16-9 in Division 4. The No. 6 seeded Cardinals will won't have to go as far for their semifinal match-up as they will face No. 1 seed and No. 20 ranked in the state Elmwood/Plum City at Elmwood Tuesday. First pitch at Raider Field will be at 5 p.m.
