The tickets are officially punched, the dates and times are set, and Championship Saturday is on.

Five state title games are set for tomorrow. In Class A baseball, Sheyenne and Shanley will meet for a second straight year, as will Dickinson and Bismarck in Class A softball.

The Class B baseball title game features the top two seeds in the tournament, LaMoure-Litchville-Marion against Thompson. It will be the same story in Class B softball, Kindred-Richland will face Central Cass. The Squirrels used a walk-off two-run home run from Peyton Nelson to survive and advance.

The girls soccer championship match will see Minot go for a second straight crown, with Shanley standing in the way. The Deacons are looking for their second title since 2019.
