McCann Tech Softball Home in Tourney Opener
The McCann Tech softball team could get another crack at Mount Everett, but that just makes the Hornets like everyone else in the Division 3 Western Mass tournament -- gunning for the top-seeded Eagles.
The MIAA released the seedings for the upcoming baseball and softball tournaements on Tuesday, and once again, Mount Everett (19-0) helded down the top seed in D3.
The Eagles get Thursday off and will instead await the winner of Thursday's game in North Adams between No. 8 McCann (11-9) and No. 9 Pioneer Valley (12-8).
Last week, Mount Everett handed McCann a 14-2 loss in the Hornets' regular season finale.
Four Berkshire County teams populate the Division 3 bracket.
Fourth-seeded Hoosac Valley (12-6) will be home on Thursday against No. 13 Franklin Tech (13-7). On the other side of the bracket, No. 11 St. Joseph (12-8) is on the road in the first round to face No. 6 Renaissance (17-3).
In Division 1, No. 8 Pittsfield (13-7) will be home on Thursday in the first round against Chicopee Comp (10-10), while No. 10 Taconic (11-9) travels to face No. 7 East Longmeadow (10-10) on Friday.
The county's lone entrant in the Division 2 field is Wahconah (13-7), which is seeded sixth and will face No. 3 Frontier in the quarter-finals of a seven-team field.
