The Morris Legion baseball team won't be entering the district playoffs in the kind of shape it would like. Morris lost four straight games last week, two by blowout scores and it was shutout in another. Coach Brock Pashen may have been understating matters when he called it a "very frustrating week."

The seeds are: 1. Wheaton; 2. Morris; 3. Chokio; 4. Clinton; 5. West Central; 6.
