Tourneys upcoming xxxxx

This is conference tournament week for prep baseball and softball, with some teams playing for pride, some for seeds and some for survival.
In CCC baseball, North Rowan is home Monday against Thomasville at 5 p.m. and Salisbury hosts Lexington at 7 p.m.
North is in the 2A state playoffs unless Salisbury, Lexington or Thomasville wins the tournament.
West Davidson is hosting the tournament semifinals Tuesday and the championship game on Thursday.
• SPC tournament baseball begins Tuesday with the four higher seeds at home.
The slate is Hickory Ridge at East Rowan, Northwest Cabarrus at Carson, Concord at South Rowan, and West Rowan at Cox Mill. All are set to start at 6:30 p.m.
Cox Mill has a higher tournament seed than West because it beat top-seeded East, but Cox Mill and West tied in the standings and split with each other, so their first-round game is a tiebreaker.
Cox Mill hosts the semifinals Wednesday and the championship Friday.
• SPC tournament softball starts Monday.
No. 1 seed West Rowan and No. 2 seed Central Cabarrus are hosting doubleheaders.
West will play Northwest at 4, with the Cox Mill-Carson game to follow.
At Central, South will play Hickory Ridge before Central takes on East.
