The Huskies’ softball team is one of two teams still alive in the Section 4AA tournament. St. Anthony and Visitation play Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Hamline University.

St. Anthony has one loss in the tournament while Visitation is unbeaten. That means the Huskies must win today and Thursday to advance to the state tournament while the Blazers need just one win in either of those games.

The Huskies and Visitation met in the fourth round of the playoffs on May 20 and the Blazers won 4-1. The loss dropped St. Anthony into the loser’s bracket final, which it won 2-1 over Minnehaha Academy on May 23.

St. Anthony is going after its third consecutive trip to the state tournament while Visitation is trying for its first state-tournament berth.
