  • Fourteen area baseball and softball teams from the 2-4A conference will be in Newport beginning today to take part in the annual district tournaments with trips to next weekend’s Regional Tournaments at stake.
    Both tournaments will get underway today at 4:30 p.m. as Newport will kick off the softball set as they play host to Cave City.  The winner of that contest will take on Heber Springs in the second game tonight with a trip to the Regional Tournament hanging in the balance.
    Action will continue Friday and Saturday, as the finals and consolation game will take place April 28.
    On the boys side, two games will be played tonight with the Newport Greyhounds beginning play tomorrow at 5 p.m. as they take on Heber Springs.  A victory over the Panthers will earn the Hounds a trip to the Regional Tournament next weekend.
    Games will resume Saturday with the finals and consolation game taking place at George Kell Park.
