Baseball, Softball, Volleyball playoff fields set

Friday’s baseball, softball and volleyball games brought an end to the regular season for Southern Nevada’s high school sports teams.
It’s officially playoff time.
The Class 4A playoff picture in baseball and softball was announced Friday by the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association. The smaller schools and the Class 4A boys volleyball finished up Friday, and those pairings will be made official this weekend.
Here’s a look at the first-round matchups by sport and by class. Keep in mind the small-school classes and volleyball remain unofficial until deemed otherwise by the NIAA.
