Baseball and softball Regional and District tournament times have been set for area teams, all starting Thursday.


Baseball


In Class A baseball Regional action, Caddo (7-14) will travel 60-plus miles to Rattan and play the host team (No. 2, 23-7) at 11 a.m. Thursday. If the Bruins win, they will take on the winner of Cameron (14-13) and Wright City (No. 10, 17-10). Otherwise, they will play the loser at 5 p.m.


Caddo is coming off back-to-back upset victories over Rock Creek last Friday, when the Bruins’ hot bats knocked out the 13th-ranked host Mustangs. Rock Creek had won three previous meetings with Caddo. The Mustangs lost twice to Rattan this season, 9-4 March 27 in the Rattan Classic and 9-0 April 5 in the Rock Creek tournament.


In Class B, Boswell (No. 14, 15-7) will take on Coleman (tied for No. 19, 11-13) at 11 a.m. Thursday at Coleman. If it’s a win for the Scorpions, they will play the winner of Fort Cobb-Broxton (No. 7, 18-7) and Thackerville (20-3) at 3 p.m. The loser’s bracket game will start at 5 p.m.


Boswell has beaten Coleman at Coleman already this season, 4-2 April 1.


Caney will face Asher (No. 2, 18-7) in the opening round at 11 a.m. Thursday at Asher. The Cougars’ next opponent will be Sasakwa (14-9) or Stuart (No. 13, 18-10) — 3 p.m. if they win, 5 p.m. if they lose.


All these brackets have the Game 5 and 6 scheduled for 4 and 6 p.m. Friday, with the if-necessary Game 7 at 1 p.m. Saturday.


Class 2A Districts also begin Thursday. No. 1-ranked Silo (26-1) drew no opponent, thus an uncontested path to Regionals.


Calera (No. 4, 21-4) will have to beat Wynnewood (5-18) twice to advance. The first game is slated for 4:30 p.m. Thursday with another game to follow. If neither team wins both, there would be a Game 3 at 4 p.m. Friday.


Colbert (No. 6, 22-9) will host Healdton/Fox (7-13) at 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. Thursday. If necessary, a third game would be played at 4 p.m. Friday.


Tushka (No. 3, 23-4) was designated a host and paired with Wewoka (0-6).


In Class 3A, Kingston (No. 9, 18-5) will host Atoka (0-14).


Softball


The one-day slow-pitch softball Regional tournaments will send Class 4A Calera and Silo up to Stratford. The Lady Bulldogs (29-7) will make an 87-mile trek to tangle with the host team (23-6) at 1 p.m. Thursday. The Lady Rebels (15-11) will wrangle with Washington (32-4) at 2:15. The winning teams will play at 3:30 and the losing teams at 4:45.


Calera won the regular-season match-up with Silo, 9-4 April 1.


Rock Creek (No. 12, 14-7) will travel 27 miles east to Soper for a Class 2A faceoff against Roff (No. 5, 20-11) at 2:15 p.m. Thursday. A Lady Mustangs’ win would have them playing at 3:30, a loss at 4:45, against either Eagletown (No. 15, 13-14) or Soper (No. 4, 16-9). Back in mid-March at the Antlers Festival, Rock Creek fell 7-5 to Soper.


In Class A, Bennington (20-8) will have more than a two-hour drive to play Red Oak (23-8) on its home field at 1 p.m. Thursday. The Lady Bears then will face Buffalo Valley (21-10) or New Lima (23-5) — 3:30 p.m. if they win, 4:45 if they lose. Bennington eliminated Caney with 7-1 and 6-2 victories on the Lady Cougars’ field last Wednesday. In March, Red Oak won 4-2 in its own tournament against Caney.


Oklahoma Secondary Schools Athletics Association set the standardized brackets with Game 5 at 6 p.m. Winners of Games 3 (3:30 p.m.) and 5 advance to State.
