What: VHSL Class 3 state baseball semifinals
When: 6 p.m. Thursday
Where: Kiwanis Field, Salem
The skinny: Fluvanna County (21-3) makes its second straight trip the Class 3 state semifinals as it vies for the program’s first state championship game berth. Pitching has been the bread and butter for the Flucos this season, thanks to the formidable 1-2 punch of Andrew and Kevin Ward. Andrew, who tied a VHSL record with 21 strikeouts in a seven-inning game earlier this postseason, is projected to take the hill in the state semifinals. Catcher Jacob Critzer and Ryan Groome are key offensive contributors. Brentsville is led by shortstop Jake DeLosi and junior Vince DiMauro, who shared regional pitcher of the year honors.
