Gilbert will host the championship round of the Class 3A District 7 baseball and softball playoffs on Friday. Both Tribe diamond teams advanced to the finals by securing second-round wins on Monday against Georgetown.

The Indians (22-2) made the move in baseball with a 3-1 win behind the pitching of Trever Frederickson, who improved to 8-0 on the season with his latest decision on the hill.

It was a bit more dramatic for the softball team. The Indians (24-4) pulled out a 5-4 win thanks to a walk-off home run in the bottom of the eighth inning by Alicia Dorgan.

Gilbert’s squads would have to lose two games on Friday to fail to advance to the Lower State championship tournament.
