• WHERE: Sprinker Recreation Center, Spanaway.

• LOCAL TEAMS: Class 3A — Auburn, Auburn Riverside. Class 4A — Jefferson, Kentlake, Kentwood, Kentridge, Tahoma.

• AT STAKE: The top seven teams from the 16-team Class 3A tournament advance to state next weekend at South End Recreation Area (SERA) in Tacoma. The top six teams in the 16-team Class 4A field advance to state.

• FAVORITE: Class 3A — Kennedy. Class 4A — Rogers.

• NOTABLE: In the Class 3A bracket, Auburn Riverside (16-4), the SPSL/Seamount League’s No. 2 seed, very well could meet up with Kennedy (20-0) in the championship game for a second straight week. The Ravens are led by right-hander Amanda Fitzsimmons, who nearly matched Kennedy star Karli Merlich during last Saturday’s SPSL/Seamount League championship game. Auburn Riverside has advanced to state in three of the last five years. … Auburn (8-12) clinched the SPSL 3A/Seamount League’s No. 8 seed last Saturday with a big 16-5 win over Hazen. Auburn hasn’t qualified for state since 2002. The South Puget Sound League North Division’s five representatives — Kentlake (17-3), Jefferson (16-6), Kentwood (13-7), Kentridge (12-9) and Tahoma (10-13) — entered the tournament Friday with its work cut out. The North Division teams went a combined 4-6 against its South Division counterparts during last weekend’s league tournament. The biggest surprise of the bunch was Kentlake, which won 16 straight games to open the season, but has lost three of its last four.
