Sep. 27—Bloomington South will be a first-round test for each of the Terre Haute high schools as a result of soccer pairings drawn Sunday by the Indiana High School Athletic Association.
In the girls Class 3A tournament at Bloomington North, it will be Terre Haute North facing the Panthers — who beat the Patriots 4-0 early in the season — in the first round, with Terre Haute South awaiting the winner between Martinsville and the host Cougars.
Terre Haute North hosts the Class 3A boys sectional this year, but it will be Terre Haute South facing Bloomington South in a first-round match.
The host Patriots open the tournament against Martinsville, with Northview and Bedford North Lawrence in the second match. Bloomington North has the bye in a seven-team bracket and will face either the host Patriots or the Artesians.
In Class 2A girls play, the key match at Owen Valley is the opener between West Vigo and Northview. The Vikings beat the Knights a few days ago but Northview is a four-time defending champion.
The Class 2A boys sectional returns to Monrovia, where Sullivan opens against Edgewood — winner to face South Vermillion — and West Vigo plays Owen Valley. Defending champion Monrovia drew Brown County.
Class A girls sectionals are hosted by Sullivan, including Bloomfield and White River Valley in addition to the Golden Arrows, and by Southmont, where South Vermillion opens with Covington.
A Class A boys sectional at South Knox includes Bloomfield and WRV.
Games will be scheduled Oct. 4 through Oct. 9
