Raiders begin postseason play

July 26, 2012


The Lawrence Raiders will begin postseason play today at the Class AAA zone tournament in Pittsburg.

Lawrence will play its first game of the three-team tourney at 4 p.m. against Tonganoxie, and if the Raiders win, they will take on Pittsburg at 6 p.m.

Raiders coach Brad Romme indicated either Trent Johnson or Cam Solko would be the starting pitcher for Game 1 and said he would leave it up to them to make the final decision.

If the Raiders lose to Tonganoxie, they will play the loser of Pittsburg and Tonganoxie at 4 p.m. Friday in a double-elimination match-up. Should Lawrence win two games today or win one game today and the double-elimination game, the Raiders will then play in the championship game at 6 p.m. Friday.

The Raiders enter the zone tournament with a record of 23-12, and Romme believes there are two keys for the team in order to advance to the American Legion State Tournament, Aug. 1-5 in Manhattan.

“Always, always, always pitching and defense,” Romme said. “We’ve swung (the bats) pretty well all year long.”
