The Narrows 3A and 4A softball tournaments begin today at SERA Fields, with four Tacoma squads battling for bids to the district tournament.
The first round of games begin at 1 p.m., headlined by Bellarmine Prep’s loser-out matchup against Central Kitsap. With a win, the Lions would be assured of a trip to districts, and would play again at 3 p.m. against Olympia for seeding. The Lions split the two matchups against the Cougars this year, winning 3-1 at home while falling 9-8 in Silverdale earlier in the season. A win in the first game would also assure the Lions a matchup on Friday at 3 p.m., in another game that will determine seeding.
The 3A action starts with another loser-out matchup between Wilson and Mount Tahoma at 1 p.m. The winner gets a bid to districts, but will move on to play Timberline at 3 p.m. and will play again on Friday at 3 p.m. The Rams won both matchups handily over the Thunderbirds this season.
Foss will try to pull an upset in another 3A loser-out matchup at 1 p.m. when they take on Shelton, whom they lost to twice earlier this season. The winner of that matchup gets a bid to districts and takes on North Thurston at 3 p.m., and will play again on Friday at 3 p.m. to determine seeding.
