Only six weeks have passed since the beginning of the spring high school sports season, but a few weeks from now all sports will be in the postseason. Before then, however, there are many games to get in.

Track and field heads into its postseason this week, with the New Castle County championships this weekend at Abessinio Stadium. Boys volleyball wraps up its regular season on Monday, with the field for the inaugural state championship tournament to be announced in a day or two. There are also a few high-profile baseball and lacrosse games on the schedule.
