NEWS RELEASE

Regional Finals have concluded around the state to determine which high schools have advanced to the State Softball Finals. This four-day event will include 36 teams competing in semi-final rounds on Wednesday and Friday then championship rounds Thursday and Saturday.

This is the first year of a new three-year agreement with the FHSAA, which is proudly hosted by the Treasure Coast Sports Commission, Historic Dodgertown, Indian River County Parks and Recreation, Indian River County, and St. Lucie West Centennial High School.

The ultimate goal of hosting this event is to highlight Indian River County as a premier sports paradise.

Without the support from Indian River County Parks and Recreation, Indian River County, Historic Dodgertown, St. Lucie West Centennial High School and many Athletic Directors on the Treasure Coast hosting this event would not be possible” states Rick Hatcher, Executive Director of the Treasure Coast Sports Commission.
