dates, times and games – Baltimore Sun

Chesapeake Softball is looking for another Class 3A title, but there’s competition…or is there?

Arundel beat the Cougars, 3-0, on April 29, and the Wildcats and Cougars (18-1) could once again advance to the Regional Finals. Then there’s Crofton to consider, who beat Arundel by one point and only lost to Chesapeake by one point.

The Class 3A South Region II seeded Cougars will meet the winner of No. 5 Crofton and No. 4 Oxon Hill on Monday. Meanwhile, Arundel is a No. 3 seed and needs to pass No. 6 Bennett.

But 3A isn’t the only place with action.

In Region 4A East I, top seed Severna Park awaits the winner of No. 5 Meade and No. 4 Old Mill, who play on Thursday. The regional final is scheduled for Monday. The Falcons beat both teams in the regular season. Meanwhile, the North County No. 3 visits rival No. 2 Glen Burnie on Monday. The Gophers beat the Knights in the regular season.

Broadneck, the fourth seed in Region 4A East II, has shown a knack for taking on good teams like Glen Burnie and Arundel competitively. The Bruins will face No. 5 Annapolis on Thursday. That winner will move on to see runner-up South River County, the No. 1 seed, on Monday.

Meanwhile, Maryland entry Caitlyn Cornwell and Northeast are the No. 2 seed in Region I 2A West and meet No. 3 Southern on Monday in the semifinals. The Eagles defeated the Bulldogs last week, 15-1.

Area champions will be re-seeded for the state tournament. The state quarterfinals will be held at the top seed’s home site. The state semifinals will be held May 24 at the Bachman Sports Complex in Glen Burnie. Class 2A plays at 4 p.m., while 3A and 4A play at 7 p.m.

The state championships will be held at the University of Maryland on May 27-28.

Baseball games are somewhat similar in 4A, but obviously the teams are very different. East Region I No. 1-seeds County champion Severna Park awaits Thursday’s winner of No. 4 South River and No. 5 Annapolis. The Falcons recorded wins against both teams this spring, finishing 14-3 in the regular season and 12-2 in County.

Meanwhile, No. 2 Broadneck, who finished his season 16-4, meets No. 3 Leonardtown or No. 6 North Point on Saturday.

In Region 4A East I, No. 3 Glen Burnie, who rode a five-game winning streak early in the season, meets No. 2 North County on Saturday – a team that just beat the Gophers recently by 12 points .

No 5 Meade and No 4 Old Mill will face off on Thursday to advance to their region’s semi-finals and No 1 Arundel, the County Championship runners-up and a team that beat Old Mill and Meade this spring.

Arundel is rated 4A in baseball and 3A in softball.

But that doesn’t mean there are fewer Anne Arundel teams in 3A, as the Northeast remains in its typical bracket rather than moving to 2A like softball did.

In Region 3A South II, the Eagles are a No. 6 seed and travel to No. 3 Oxon Hill on Thursday, while No. 5 Crofton visits No. 4 Bennett. The teams will face off for the right to see No. 2 Chesapeake and No. 1 Decatur, respectively, on Saturday.

That leaves Southern alone in 2A. The Bulldogs, third seeded 2A West Region I, will wait until Saturday to visit number 2 Century. The Bulldogs finished 11-9 this spring.

Unlike softball, baseball’s national semifinals are a bit more complicated. Classes have yet to be publicly dedicated to a site, likely depending on who attends. Options are McCurdy Field in Frederick, University of Maryland and Shirley Povich Field in Rockville. The latest is Waldorf’s Regency Stadium, which has already been designated 2A.

All state semifinals will take place on May 24 at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.

In the national finals, 4A will compete first, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. Class 2A will follow on May 28 at 1 p.m., then 3A at 7 p.m.

These will also take place at the Regency Stadium.
