Chugiak, South sit in powerful position for CIC playoffs

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | May 17, 2016

The Cook Inlet Conference this week will split in half for the final three games of the high school baseball season.

The top four teams with the best record after seven games advanced to the championship round robin, where records carry over as a reward for taking care of business in the regular season.

After the round robin the top two teams advance to the ASAA state tournament at Mulcahy Stadium in Anchorage.

Defending state champion Chugiak [7-0] and South [6-1] are in the driver's seat.

Third-seeded Dimond [4-3] and fourth-seeded Service [4-3] must win two of three to have any chance.

If needed, an if-necessary game is May 24 just in case 10 games wasn't enough to determine state berths.

The bottom four teams will play in a consolation round robin.
