Conference seedings at stake in the final games

FRONT ROYAL — All local spring sports teams would desire at least one home playoff game in the Conference 28 tournaments that begin in approximately two weeks.

With just a handful of regular season games left on the slate, several teams are in good shape heading into the final stretch.

The Warren County baseball team is 11-2 and has six games left on the schedule, including two crucial make-up games against William Monroe and Strasburg, the only two squads to defeat the Wildcats this season.

Currently Warren is tied with Brentsville for the No. 1 seed in the eight-team conference tournament, but William Monroe is just six points behind.

The conference uses a points system, similar to the one used in football.

This is a necessity since the schools in Conference 28 play in several different districts.

If the rankings hold, Warren would likely play either No. 8 seed James Monroe or No. 7 seed Manassas Park in the opening round.

If the Wildcats fell to No. 3, another game versus current No. 6 seed Skyline could be possible.

In softball the Skyline Hawks (11-5) have a comfortable hold on the No. 2 spot behind No. 1 seed Brentsville.

Warren County (9-5) is No. 3 with William Monroe slotting in at No. 4.

The Hawks would host Manassas Park if the ratings hold and the Wildcats would host Culpeper.

Skyline has five games remaining with the regular season finale at home against James Wood as the toughest test on the slate.

Warren also has five regular season games left, with tough games against William Monroe and Central remaining.

In girls soccer, Warren County is in line for a home game with the No. 4 seed and could host cross-town rival Skyline, who is currently No. 5.

The Wildcats and Hawks battled to a 1-1 tie last week.

The Warren boys are also slotted in at No. 4 and could host Culpeper.

The Hawks are No. 8 and have the enviable task of traveling to Fredericksburg and taking on No. 1 seed James Monroe.

In boys tennis, Skyline is currently No. 3 in the six-team conference, trailing James Monroe and Brentsville. Warren is ranked No. 6

On the girls side, the 11-1 Wildcats are No. 3, trailing Riverside and James Monroe.
