Ankeny’s crosstown rivals have never met in a postseason softball game.
That is about to change.
Tenth-ranked Ankeny Centennial (20-7) will host Ankeny (14-13) in a Class 5A Region 4 semifinal on Saturday, July 10. The game begins at 7 p.m.
The two teams split a doubleheader at Centennial on June 9. The Jaguars posted a 6-5 victory in the opener before Ankeny rebounded for a 13-6 win in the nightcap.
The Hawkettes will host another twinbill against Centennial on Monday.
No. 4 Indianola (25-3) is the top seed in Region 4. The Indians will host Dowling Catholic (11-17) or Des Moines Roosevelt (3-17) in the other semifinal game.
The regional final will be played on Tuesday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at a site to be determined.
