Viroqua's Varsity Legion will play in the regional hosted by Prairie du Chien at St. Feriole Island Ballpark.
The regional games start Wed. July 24th and wrap up Sat. July 27th. This is a standard, 6-team, Legion double elimination tournament.
A map to the ballpark is here: http://goo.gl/maps/7xGpW
Wed. July 24 at 8 pm
Viroqua plays in Game 3 v. the Regional Host, Prairie du Chien. Update: Viroqua won 6-3
Thurs. July 25
UPDATE: Postponed due to rain. Game 6 is now scheduled for 5:30 pm Friday. Viroqua (1-0) v. Bi - State (1-0)
Whether and when Viroqua plays on Friday and Saturday depends on how they do on Wed. and Thurs. Once they get 2 losses, they are done with the Regional tournament.
Of course, this is mostly academic and just warm up, as Viroqua automatically qualifies for the 2013 Class A Wisconsin State Varsity Legion Tournament.
Viroqua is hosting the State Tournament Wed. July 31 thru Sun. Aug. 4 at the Park Bowl.
The winner of the PdC Regional will advance to the State Tournament in Viroqua.... unless Viroqua wins the Regional, in which case the runner-up advances to the State Tourney.
The full regional schedule is below.
