With five of the top six teams in the state and 11 of the top 30, it’s no secret that the State Softball Tournament, starting Friday at Jack C. Fisher Park in Owensboro, is a tough field.
But balanced it doesn't seem to be.
The top half of the bracket is spilling over with ranked teams -- No. 1 Christian County, No. 5 Mercy, No. 6 Allen County Scottsville, No. 20 Franklin County, No. 22 Garrard County, No. 29 Ashland Blazer and No 30 Shelby County.
