The state’s lone unbeaten team and defending champs have advanced to the state tourney. Monday, the first round of tickets were punched to Fort Dodge to play next week in the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union State Softball Tournament.
Iowa Public Television will broadcast the 1A finals on Friday, July 25th at 10A. I will have your call with Laura Leonard. You can watch on the air or online at http://www.IPTV.org that day.
