Pahrump Valley High School’s baseball and softball teams each drew the No. 2 seed for the upcoming region tournaments, the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association announced Friday.
The baseball team will host No. 7 seed Virgin Valley, a team that defeated the Trojans 11-8 on May 3 in Mesquite, at 4 p.m. Tuesday, while No. 6 seed Eldorado will travel to No. 3 seed Moapa Valley at the same time. The winners will meet at 4 p.m. Wednesday, while the losers will square off in an elimination game at 2:30 p.m. Thursday.
That game will be at the home field of the loser of Wednesday’s game against the two first-round winners, who will play the survivor at 5 p.m. The winner of that game will travel to whichever team opened 2-0 at 2:30 p.m. Friday, with a second game, if necessary at 5 p.m.
In the other half of the bracket, No. 9 seed Western will face No. 8 seed Valley at 4 p.m. Monday for the right to travel to No. 1 seed Boulder City at 4 p.m. Monday. No. 5 seed SLAM Nevada will face No. 4 seed Clark at the same time. From there, the format will mimic the format in the lower half of the bracket.
The two survivors will meet Saturday in a one-game regional championship.
The softball team will open regional play at 4 p.m. Tuesday when SLAM Nevada travels to Pahrump. The Trojans defeated the Bulls 15-0 on Tuesday. In the other half of that part of the bracket, No. 6 seed Valley will face No. 3 seed Moapa Valley. The winners and losers each will meet at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The winner of the game between the two opening-round losers will face the loser of the game between the two opening-round winners at 4 p.m. Thursday.

The other half of the bracket opens at 4 p.m. Monday with No. 9 seed Sunrise Mountain facing No. 7 seed Desert Pines, with the winner traveling to Mesquite to face No. 1 seed Virgin Valley at 4 p.m. Tuesday, the same time No. 5 seed Clark will meet No. 4 seed Boulder City.
