The first game of the Class A state baseball tournament will match the two-time defending champion Warriors against the Islanders. Westside is ranked No. 1 and carries a 29-5 record into the tourney while the 20-7 Islanders reached state after an upset win over Lincoln Southwest in a district final.

A possible berth in the Class B state tournament will be on the line when these River Cities Conference rivals meet in a first-round game of the B-6 District. The teams did not meet during the regular season after their scheduled game last week was rained out.

All eight teams in the tournament are ranked this week, including Class A No. 1 Omaha Westside and Class B No. 1 Lincoln Pius X. The Warriors are coming off a championship performance in last week's Metro Conference tournament.

The eight-team baseball tournament features six ranked teams, including Class A No. 1 Millard South and two-time defending Class A state champion Omaha Westside. The championship game will be played Saturday at 5:30 p.m.

Despite some major changes from last season, Omaha Benson continues to roll. The defending state champion is 15-0 and riding a 34-game win streak that dates to midseason last year. The transfer of four players from Omaha Northwest — most notably senior center Simone Goods — has not wrecked the team chemistry.
