What to watch in high school sports this week:

Baseball: D.C. Everest at SPASH, 4:30 p.m., today: With seven games already under their belt, and sporting a 6-1 Wisconsin Valley Conference record, the Panthers have clearly established themselves as the frontrunner for the conference championship. D.C. Everest and Wausau West have only played three WVC games entering this week. You can probably expect a low-scoring game as DCE and SPASH rank first and second in pitching, respectively, with 1.00 and 1.09 earned run averages.

Softball: SPASH at D.C. Everest, 4:30 p.m.. Today: The Evergreens were edged 2-1 by the Panthers in the opening game of the season in Portage, and will look to earn a split of the Wisconsin Valley Conference series. SPASH comes into the game with an 8-0 mark in the conference, and 17-1 overall after rallying from a four-run deficit against Kaukauna on Saturday. A win for the Panthers can all but lock up another conference championship.

Softball: Wausau West at Pacelli (Zenoff Park), 4 p.m., Friday: Pacelli isn't afraid to play some of the the top competition around to see how the Division 3 program measures up, as the Cardinals will test their mettle against Wisconsin Valley Conference member Wausau West. Defending WIAA state champion Pacelli is looking to get on track with playoffs looming. The Cardinals have gotten off to a sluggish start at 5-3 overall and 3-3 in the Central Wisconsin Conference-8. The Warriors are 1-3 in the Valley, but feature a strong hitting combination in Mikayla Kramer (.455) and Sam Hack (.444) who rank seventh and eighth, respectively, in league play in batting average.

Tennis: SPASH at Wausau East Quad, 9 a.m.. Saturday: The Wisconsin Valley Conference rivals met earlier in the season in a classic conference dual meet with the Panthers pulling out a 4-3 win. SPASH swept the singles competition, while the Lumberjacks picked up wins in all three doubles matches. While WVC bragging rights may not be on the line in the nonconference matchup Saturday, it provides a chances to see two of the top programs in central Wisconsin battle.
