Free State softball draws Derby first

May 20, 2013


The brackets are all set for the Class 6A state softball tournament, and Free State High will play the final game of the first round Thursday at Blue Valley West, in Overland Park.

The Firebirds (19-3) received the No. 3 seed and will face No. 6 Derby (13-5) approximately 5 p.m., following the other three state quarterfinal games.

The Free State-Derby winner will see No. 2 Olathe East (21-1) or No. 7 Blue Valley Northwest (13-7) in the state semifinals at 1 p.m. Friday. From there, a loss would mean a third-place game at 3, while a win would bring a state-title-game berth at 5.
