Several Stevens County athletes will be competing in postseason and other competitions this weekend.
On Friday, May 17, 1B district fastpitch games will be taking place at Franklin Park.
Selkirk will face Pomeroy and Inchelium will play Garfield-Palouse.
Both of those loser-out games begin at noon.
The 1/2B track championships get underway at Central Valley High School on Friday, too.
Competitors from Kettle Falls, Mary Walker, Jenkins and Columbia (Hunters) are among the field.
In addition to county athletes, several tracksters from Republic, Curlew and Selkirk will be there, as well.
The meet gets underway at 4 p.m. and continues Saturday morning at 10 a.m.
