Washington Post 218 will prepare for the zone tournament in Moberly this week. Washington took second in the 9th district tournament at Westhoff Park over the weekend but had already qualified for zone. The West Jaguars posted a 7-1 victory over Washington yesterday to claim the district tournament title. Washington and West both advance to the zone 1 tournament and will square off for the sixth time this season when they meet in the opening round Thursday night at 8:00. Washington won the first three match-ups, but West beat Post 218 twice in last week's tournament. Washington's games will be broadcast live on KLPW-AM 1220.
