NEWBERRY — The season has been extended for the Chapin-Newberry American Legion baseball team after an ineligible player protest against Greenville was upheld Monday.

The defending state champions will head back to Sumter after a 3-2 series victory over Greenville last week in game 5.

Chapin-Newberry is now 19-5 overall on the season. The team travels to Sumter on Friday for a team orientation and cookout.

State tournament play begins at Riley Park on Saturday and continues through Wednesday.

The eight teams playing for the state championship are:

Upper State: (1) Inman, (2) Chapin/Newberry, (3) Rock Hill, (4) Spartanburg

Lower State: (1) Florence, (2) Camden, (3) Sumter, (4) Hartsville, Georgetown or Manning to be determined by a play in this week.

Chapin-Newberry squares off Saturday at 1 p.m. with a 25-8 Sumter team.

Three other games will be played on Saturday: a 9:30 a.m. contest of Inman vs #4 in lower state, a 4:30 p.m. game of Rock Hill versus Camden and an 8 p.m. contest between Florence and Spartanburg.

Four games will be played Sunday. The winners and losers of the Sumter versus Chapin-Newberry and Florence versus Spartanburg games will face each other on Sunday. The losers will play at 1 p.m. and the winners square off Sunday at 8 p.m.
