The top-seeded Delone Catholic softball team will try to reach its second straight District 3 Class AA title game. The Squirettes (16-4) play No. 4 seed Susquenita (17-5) in a semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at Garrett Field in Willow Street. The winner reaches the title game and secures a berth in the PIAA tournament.

Spring Grove holds the highest seed remaining in the District 3 Class AAA baseball semifinals. The No. 4 Rockets (17-6) take on No. 8 Twin Valley (17-6) at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Hershey High School, with a spot in Thursday's championship on the line. Regardless of Tuesday's result, Spring Grove has already secured a PIAA tournament berth.

Also Tuesday, the fifth-seeded York Catholic baseball team (12-5) takes on eighth-seeded Upper Dauphin (13-9) at 4 p.m. at Northern York High School in a District 3 Class AA semifinal. The winner lands in the title game and secures a PIAA berth.
