Eight teams remain in contention for the Class 5A Region IV baseball championship.
Four of the eight teams include District 30-5A’s Moody, Calallen, King, and Ray, while the other four teams include District 26-5A’s Kerrville Tivy, Dripping Springs, Boerne Champion and Medina Valley.
The field of teams will be cut in half through quarter-final matchups set for this weekend.
Corpus Christi Calallen, the team that recently beat the Uvalde Coyotes in bi-district play, will face the Corpus Christi Ray Texans in a series.
Calallen, 20-12-1 for the season, topped Ray twice, 5-1 and 4-3, in district action this year.
Last weekend, the District 30-5A runner-up Wildcats won two of their three Area playoff games played against the Mission Veterans Memorial Patriots.
The Cats beat the Pats, 9-6, in the series opener.
Veterans Memorial won game two, 8-4, but Calallen won the third game, 6-3.
Ray, 23-6 for the season, swept Edcouch-Elsa, 2-1 and 5-0, in a pair of playoff games last weekend.
The winner of the Calallen-Ray series will advance to play the winner between the Boerne Champion Chargers and the Dripping Springs Tigers.
In district play, they split their two games.
