The first day of the Region VI softball tournaments is in the books, with the national qualifiers being decided somewhere around 2PM Sunday for the two Division II regionals while Division 1 may take a little longer.
Coffeyville, a surprise newcomer has the upper hand with the District D Tournament and will take on the winner of the Labette vs. Cowley game to be played at 10AM at Hummer Sports Park in Topeka.
Highland, ranked No. 8 nationally will await the winner of the Independence vs the winner of the Kansas City vs Cloud game which will be played again at 10AM in District E in the same location.
Four teams remain in Division I at Wichita State and Seward will meet Butler at 10AM in the winners bracket with the winner waiting to play again at 4PM against whoever survives among the loser of that game plus the winner of Garden City vs. Barton County which gets going at noon.
National Tournament status is at stake and all players will have their game faces on.
