The Philipsburg-Osceola High School softball team will stay in the District 6/5 region as it continues its quest for a PIAA Class AA championship.

The Lady Mounties’ state quarterfinal game on Thursday will be held at Somerset Area High School with the first pitch scheduled for 4 p.m., the PIAA has announced.

P-O’s opponent will be South Park, a 16-4 winner over Northwestern out of District 10 in its first round game. South Park was the runner-up in the District 7 tournament.

The Lady Mounties are coming off a 6-5 win against Steel Valley, the third-place team from District 7. The winner of Thursday’s game will take on either Ellwood City or Moniteau in the state semifinals on Monday.

The championship game is scheduled for June 16 at Penn State University.
