The winner of that match will travel to Waverly on July 18th to face the District 5 champion, which will be one team from a field of Waverly-Shell Rock, Cresco Crestwood, Charles City and Center Point-Urbana.  That game will be played at Waverly-Shell Rock High School at 7:00 p.m. next Wednesday, with a trip to the State Class 3A Baseball Tournament on the line.
