This week marks the end of the regular season for baseball and softball. The tennis state tournament for both boys and girls is also this week as well as the boys’ lacrosse state tournament. The girls’ district lacrosse tournament is also this week with the state tournament starting Saturday and moving into next week.

St. Xavier’s tennis team looks to win its sixth straight state championship this week. The Tigers will play a semifinal match Wednesday with the championship Thursday. The Tigers will face Ashland Blazer in the semifinals and will likely find themselves playing McCracken County in the state title match.

Sacred Heart’s tennis team has a good shot at winning the girls state championship for a second straight year. However, the Valkyries will have to get past McCracken County in the semifinals for a shot at winning state. The semifinal winner will likely go on to win the title.

While the baseball and softball season is winding down, there are still a few big games left to be played. Assumption’s softball team will host Holy Cross, Trinity’s baseball team travels to Pleasure Ridge Park, and DeSales travels to Butler for a big district matchup Monday.

The lacrosse state tournament starts Monday with Trinity facing Collegiate and St. Xavier hosting Ballard. The semifinals will be Wednesday at 6 and 8 p.m. at St. X with the finals at St. X Friday at 7 p.m.
