Two of the top local squads will have to get through other foes to secure their usual postseason showdown.

Delta, which has won 22 sectionals in the past 23 years, opens with Burris. The Eagles were ranked eighth in the state in the most recent poll and came into Monday with a 19-2 record. On the other side, Yorktown (12-2 before Monday) drew Central, led at No. 1 singles by Rebecca Hollowell.
