Tigers, Wolves play in second round tonight

The Class 1A regional softball quarterfinals will be upon us tonight (Wednesday) and two Henry County teams will be in action. Both New London and Winfield-Mt. Union will play their Region 5 quarterfinal game at 7 p.m.

New London will be on the road against a second-seeded North Mahaska team, who is currently ranked No. 15 in Class 1A. W-MU will host BGM in their half of the bracket.

The Tigers would face either Sigourney or Montezuma on Friday, July 12, if they can score the upset. That game will be at North Mahaska.

With a win, W-MU would head to Lynville-Sully on Friday night, where they’d play L-S or Lone Tree.

The championship game will be at a to-be-determined site next week. That game will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 15.
