Spring baseball tournaments on tap

By CT McDonald

Spring break starts Friday, with some local teams kicking off the spring tournament ritual late this week and others playing through next week.

Irmo’s varsity baseball team will complete a two-game Region 5-4A matchup with A. C. Flora today, Thursday, and then start the Kershaw Richland (KRC) Spring Break Invitational at Camden High School on Saturday at 11 am.

The Yellow Jackets start with a game against Sumter, then play Monday and Tuesday against Darlington and Mid-Carolina, respectively. Wednesday’s games will be determined by wins and losses during the tournament.

Dutch Fork will play in the Forest Acres Classic baseball tournament at A. C. Flora starting Monday against Hammond. The tournament runs through Thursday, with the Silver Foxes playing Dreher on Tuesday and Flora on Wednesday.

Teams competing in Thursday’s championship games will be determined by previous wins and losses in the tournament.

And, Chapin will compete in the South Carolina Diamond Invitational at Blythewood next week beginning Wednesday against Blythewood’s Bengals.

The Eagles then take on Dorman on Thursday and Boiling Springs on Friday, with championship games set for Saturday.

After that, it’s back to class and back to the regular spring schedule.
