Monday morning was a good news/bad news situation for the Ringling Blue Devils baseball team.

On the plus side of things, the No. 14 Blue Devils learned they will be one of the hosts beginning this Thursday for the Class A Regional Baseball Tournament.

The bad news came when their opponents were drawn.

Joining Ringling will be No. 7 Navajo, along with No. 10 Wright City, and Snyder.

Ringling will get its chance to take on Wright City in their opening contest Thursday afternoon at 3 p.m. with the winner meeting either Navajo or Snyder at 5 p.m. The losers will meet at 7 p.m. for the right to stay alive in the regional tournament.

Ringling enters the regional tournament off the heels of a successful district title sweep over Empire and Waurika. The Blue Devils currently sport an overall record of 20-1. 

Wright City currently owns a 19-8 overall record, including a 5-3 record against Class A opposition this season. However, those three losses came against teams currently ranked in the top five of the Class A state rankings.

Navajo, like Ringling hasn’t lost to Class A opposition this season, and enters the regional tournament with an overall record of 24-3.

Snyder currently sports an overall record of 12-9 after defeating Central High to win their district tournament in Marlow over the weekend.

Meanwhile, in the Class 4A ranks, the bi-district pairings were also released on Monday afternoon, with the Plainview Indians the only team earning the right to host. 

PHS will welcome the Newcastle Racers on Thursday for a doubleheader at 4 and 6 p.m. with an if necessary game to be played Friday.

Other bi-district contests to be played on Thursday include the Sulphur Bulldogs hitting the road to take on the Kingfisher Yellowjackets.

The Madill Wildcats will also be hitting the road as they will take on the Elk City Elks for their bi-district contest.

Lone Grove will also face a road bi-district playoff as the Longhorns were drawn against the Clinton Red Tornadoes. 

Weatherford, Elgin, Heritage Hall, Blanchard, Byng, Berryhill, and Oologah-Talala all received byes in the bi-district round of the playoffs.
