FT. DODGE — The brackets are all set for the Class 1A softball tournament in Ft. Dodge next week. The action kicks off on Monday, July 16, and all of the Class 1A games will take place in the late morning and early afternoon.

New London will be playing as the No. 7 seed. Their opponent, Akron-Westfield, finished the season ranked No. 3 in Class 1A. The Tigers’ game will be on Buena Vista University field at 1 p.m. with the other game in the bottom half of the bracket starting on Diamond 2 at 1:30 p.m.
