    Sioux City East braces for Jefferson

    Sioux City East might be making its first trip to the state softball tournament since 1999, but at least the Black Raiders will be familiar enough with their surroundings in Fort Dodge. East locked up a state berth by defeating Ankeny 4-1 in nine innings last week in a Class 4-A regional final played at Fort Dodge's Rogers Sports Complex. The Black Raiders now return to the site of their biggest win in five years to take on Cedar Rapids Jefferson today in the opening round of the 4-A state tourney.

    Ruf delivers Westside to championship game

    Facing elimination in the Class A American Legion state baseball tournament, Grubb & Ellis relied on Darin Ruf's complete-game, nine-strikeout performance to eliminate Grand Island Home Federal 5-1 Tuesday night at Bellevue East's Roddy Field. Grubb & Ellis (Omaha Westside) advances to tonight's 7:30 championship game against West Bay (Millard West). The finals, originally set for Tuesday night, were postponed after a heavy batch of rain rolled in between games.
