The frenzy of the Spring Sectional Tournament season has begun, and area teams are in the heat of the action again this spring.

The Penn Yan Mustang baseball team and Varsity Boys Lacrosse team are both seeded No. 1 in their bracket.

The baseball team gets a bit of a break until Friday, May 25 when they face the winner of Tuesday’s game between Waterloo and Midlakes. Because they are the top seeded team in Class BB, they will play on their Elm Street home field at 4:30 p.m.

Coach Marty Olmstead says the team is looking forward to sectional play and trying to claim the sectional title they last held in 1983. "It has been a very successful season with one freshman, two sophomore, four juniors and five seniors," he comments.

The boys lacrosse team started tournament play Monday with a 20-0 victory over 16th seed Bishop Kearney. The quarterfinal game will be at 7 p.m.  Wednesday, May 23 in Penn Yan against  Marcus Whitman. The Wildcats defeated East Rochester 11 - 5 to advance.

A victory in that game will send them to the semi-final round against either in Victor. The Section V Class C Championship game will be played at St. John Fisher next Tuesday, May 29 at 3:30 p.m.

The Penn Yan Lady Mustang softball team is the second seed in their Class B1 Tournament behind No. 1 seed Charlotte. They begin their post season play at 4:30 p.m. Friday in Penn Yan against  No. 7 seed Midlakes.
