Five area baseball and softball teams remain in the running for Final Four berths, heading into this week’s Florida High School Athletic Association regional semifinals.

Eustis, Mount Dora Christian Academy and East Ride represent Lake County on the softball field in Tuesday’s games, while MDCA and Eustis are preparing for second-round baseball games.

Of the five games across two sports involving teams from Lake County, East Ridge’s softball team has the only home game. The Knights, with a 20-7 record, will welcome Winter Garden West Orange (16-12 record) to the Dungeon.

A victory against the Warriors, which won back-to-back Class 9A state titles in 2016 and 2017, would propel the Knights into Friday’s regional championship game against Lakewood Ranch or Newsome. The location for that game will be decided following Tuesday’s contests.
