A total of five Sullivan County teams earned berths in the two tourneys.
Those teams are the Livingston Manor, Sullivan West and Tri-Valley baseball teams and the Livingston Manor and Sullivan West softball teams.
Yesterday afternoon, the Tri-Valley Bears, who are the No. 4 seed in the Class C baseball tournament, went on the road to face the top-seeded Millbrook Blazers in a semifinal game.
The winner will advance to the Class C title game, which is scheduled to be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow at Gruner Field in Lake Katrine.
In a Class D baseball semifinal yesterday afternoon, the second-seeded Livingston Manor Wildcats hosted No. 3 seed Chapel Field. The winner will play in the Class D championship game, which will be held at 4 p.m. tomorrow at SUNY New Paltz.
At 4 p.m. today, the second-seeded Sullivan West Bulldogs will host No. 7 seed Onteora in a Class B baseball opening round game. The winner will face either Marlboro or John S. Burke Catholic High School in Thursday’s semifinals.
