Nineteen of the 24 area baseball and softball teams qualified for the state playoffs, and now all but two know who they will face in the opening rounds.

The games begin Wednesday with Conway softball traveling to Summerville. That game was moved up a day in anticipation of heavy rains later in the week. Other schools were pondering similar moves.
