This is it — the final day of regular-season softball games. I’ve confirmed through two coaches that the Section 1 tournament seeding meeting will be held Wednesday morning (not Tuesday), so that games can be played today without trying to cram everything in at once.
With that being said, I’m going to schedule a live chat for 8 p.m. tomorrow night. This should allow everyone additional time to have dinner with their families, do some homework, and prepare any questions or comments you’ll have for me in the chat. Live chats are candid, so the range of conversation is pretty wide. Just keep it respectful.
Of course, there’s still softball to be played. Here’s what happened around the section Monday:
