Though both the Marcellus baseball and softball teams are part of the Section III Class B playoffs, staying there for a long times will take some effort.
As the no. 9 seed in Class B, the baseball Mustangs (14-8) get to visit no. 8 seed Hannibal (a team it met twice in the regular season) Tuesday, with the winner likely to run into top seed Westhill in Thursday's quarterfinals.
Meanwhile, the softball Mustangs saw its Class B bracket split, despite 16 entries.
Marcellus takes its 10-7 mark down the road to try and upend no. 2 seed Westhill, the defending champions, in Thursday's quarterfinal at 4:30. The winner will face Altmar-Parish-Williamstown or Homer.
