4A, Mitchell (21-3) at Dunnellon (29-1)

What's next? Winner advances to state, plays the winner of Cardinal Gibbons-Jensen Beach.

Skinny: There's arguably no tougher opponent standing between the Mustangs and a state title than Dunnellon. The defending Class 4A state champion has lost just one game in two seasons. This year, they've outscored opponents 319-27 thanks to a well-rounded lineup. The Tigers are led by Kasey Fagan, who is 23-1 with 219 strikeouts and a 0.62 ERA. She and sister Sami Fagan also lead with their bats, both with averages above .580; Kasey has a whopping 61 RBIs and eight home runs. Mitchell ace Cortney Radke will have her hands full and will need plenty of run support.

A, Hernando Christian (21-4) vs. Calvary Christian (17-7) at Ormond Beach Sports Complex

She also leads HCA in hitting with a. 476 batting average, 22 RBIs, 10 doubles, four triples, 30 hits and 27 runs scored.
