Medina Valley and Southwest vie for top softball seeding

While the post-season playoff series for the Uvalde Lobos is set, the first-place seeding for the playoffs remains to be decided.

Following the conclusion of the regular-season district schedule last Thursday, two teams locked in a tie for first place.

Tomorrow at San Antonio’s ISD Spring Sports Complex field no. 1, the Medina Valley Panthers, 27-2 for the season, will host the Southwest Dragons, 29-5-1 for the season, in a game to determine who will represent District 28-5A as the number-one seed in the playoffs.

The game is set for a 7 p.m. start.

Both the Panthers and the Dragons finished their regular-season schedule with a 15-1 record.

In head-to-head district play, Medina Valley topped Southwest, 8-3, in the game played at Southwest, while the Dragons topped the Panthers, 5-0, in the game played at Castroville.

The MV-SW winner will go on to play District 27-5A’s fourth-place team, the Burbank Bulldogs in bi-district, while the loser will take on 27-5A’s third-place finisher, the Alamo Heights Mules in bi-district.

Fourth place in the District 28-5A race was decided Thursday as Eagle Pass Winn topped Harlan, 7-2, while Floresville lost an 8-7 decision to Legacy.

Winn and Floresville entered the final district game tied for fourth place.

By finishing fourth, Winn now will play the District 27-5A champion Edison Bears in bi-district play, while the losing team will end its season.
