Iola High’s Mustangs and Fillies found out  Wednesday their spots and opponents for baseball and softball regional play next week.
The Mustangs go into next week’s Kansas Class 4A Regional Baseball Tournament as the No. 2 seeded team. The top seed went to Osawatomie High’s Trojans.
The Class 4A regional baseball tournament is hosted by Spring Hill High School. Spring Hill’s Broncos (13-6) are defending regional champions.
The Trojans went into Wednesday’s seeding pro-cess at 17-1. The Mustangs pulled in at 16-2 and the Broncos took the No. 3 seed in the single-elimination tournament.
All games in the 4A baseball regional will be played Monday and Tuesday at Spring Hill.
The Mustangs play Louisburg (5-12), the No. 7 seeded team, at noon Monday. The following game has Spring Hill playing No. 6 seeded Anderson County (7-13).
If Iola and Spring Hill win in the opening round that will bring a rematch of last year’s semifinal game. The Broncos slipped past the Mustangs 4-3 on their way to the regional title.
Fourth-seeded Fort Scott (11-6) and fifth-seeded Paola (8-12) play at 4:30 p.m. Monday. Osawatomie plays No. 8 seeded Prairie View (5-12) at 6:45.
Semifinal games are Tuesday followed by the championship game at 7 p.m. The first semifinal is at 2 p.m. followed by one at 4:30 p.m., which is the one the Mustangs would play.

The Fillies (3-16) were seeded seventh in the eight-team  Kansas Class 4A Re-gional Softball Tournament. Next week’s regional hosted by Osawatomie High starts Monday with games at higher-seeded team’s home fields.
That means the Fillies travel to Fort Scott (12-6), which is the No. 2 seeded team, Monday.
The game starts at 5:30 p.m.
Paola (14-4) earned the top seed in the softball regional and hosts No. 8 Anderson County (1-17) Monday.  Prairie View (11-9) is seeded No. 4 and hosts No. 5 Osawatomie (7-13).
The third seeded team is Ottawa (12-8) hosting No. 6 Louisburg (5-15). These two are in the same side of the bracket as the Fillies.
Semifinals are Tuesday and play shifts to Osa-watomie’s Karl E. Cole Complex. If Iola wins Monday, the Fillies play at 4:45 p.m. The first semifinal is at 3 p.m.
The championship game is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
On the line in both re-gionals are berths to the 2011 Kansas Class 4A State Baseball and Softball Tournaments. The state tournaments are May 27-28 in Salina.
