THE BUZZ

Top-ranked Stockdale is taking the week off. But the Mustangs return to action next week with home and away games against No. 3 Frontier, which reached the semifinals of the Clovis Easter Softball Classic by going 4-0 through a pool that also included No. 9 Clovis. Hanford West was poised for a drop in the rankings following a stunning 3-2 loss to unranked Lemoore in eight innings Friday in a West Yosemite League game, but the Huskies righted the ship at the Easter Classic, going 4-0 through Pool C with wins over No. 7 Central and previously ninth-ranked Bullard.

There's a nice small-schools showdown on tap at the Kerman Easter Classic with the hosts playing North Sequoia League rival Liberty-Madera Ranchos in today's semifinals. The Hawks beat the Lions 3-2 Thursday in a NSL game.
