Since they both had strong regular-season efforts, the West Genesee baseball and softball teams will get to be at home to start out the Section III Class AA playoffs.
On the baseball side, the Wildcats (15-8), as the no. 6 seed, meet no. 11 seed Corcoran (11-11).
If WG wins, it goes east to face Utica Proctor, the no. 3 seed and two-time defending Class AA champions, on Thursday. The finals are June 2 at 4:30 at Alliance Bank Stadium.
Since only 10 teams qualified in Class AA softball, West Genesee, as the no. 4 seed with a 17-4 record, goes right into a Saturday quarterfinal against no. 5 seed Oswego.
A victory would push WG into the June 3 semifinals at Hopkins Road Park, with the finals on June 6 at the Gillette Road complex in Cicero.
