County teams win in softball regionals

Marti Johnson was the winning pitcher for Prescott in its regional tournament game vs. Durand.

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.
