Leading up to the opening round of the Class 2A-District 14 Tournament, some uncertainty was abound for the South Central Calhoun baseball team. After all, it was hard telling whether the Manson-Northwest baseball team would be able to return to the baseball diamond in time, due to reporting a positive case of COVID-19 among its team members on June 29.

It turned out, that the Cougars were able to come back and play, and keep the original tournament schedule relatively intact.

The Titans will take a short trip down and eastbound, taking on Southeast Valley in the opening round of the postseason at 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Southeast Valley Baseball Diamond in Dayton. Manson-Northwest Webster will face ACGC (Adair-Casey/Guthrie Center) in the first game of the district twinbill.

Both Titan and Jaguar fans are instructed to wait until 6:30 p.m. to enter the premises, to allow for cleaning between games.

If Manson-Northwest Webster had bowed out of the season, the Titans would have had to change out the Jaguars for the Chargers and switch venues from Dayton's revamped diamond to the campus of ACGC High School in Guthrie Center.

The Titans will seek to put aside their 0-10 regular season record, and aim to upset the homestanding Jaguars, who come into the game with a 4-6 record. 

In the previous meeting between the two clubs, the Jags soundly defeated the Titans via a 15-0 decision in four innings on June 26 at The Ball Park in Lytton. 

Since the Southeast Valley baseball program's formation in 2014, the Jaguars have owned a 10-2 advantage in the all-time series between the two schools. However, the last time that SCC had visited Dayton, the Titans took home a 5-0 victory on June 26, 2019.
