Wet field conditions forced the Kansas Class 4A Regional Softball Tournament hosted by Ottawa High School to push back opening round action a day.
Iola High’s Fillies were to have played Louisburg today at 4:45 in Ottawa.
The four opening-round games are now slated for the same times on Tuesday. Iola will play Louisburg on Field 7 at the Ottawa Orlis Cox Complex.
The semifinal and championship games are on Wednesday in Ottawa.
If Iola wins Tuesday, there could be a rematch of last year’s 4A state opening-round between the Fillies and Ottawa. Ottawa has to get past Baldwin to set that up. The game would at 4:45 p.m. Wednesday.
Iola won the regional title last year but Ottawa and Baldwin are new to the regional this year. Ottawa finished second in the 4A state tournament a year ago.
Iola High’s Mustangs play at home tonight, 6 o’clock, at the Allen County Community College field. The Mustangs take on Prairie View High’s Buffalos in the opening round of the Kansas Class 4A Regional Baseball Tournament.

Ottawa finished third in the Class 4A state tournament a year ago. Louisburg made it to state and lost in the first round.
