County archrivals Wayne Country Day and Wayne Christian learned their postseason fate when the 16-team field was announced for the N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association Class 1-A baseball playoffs late Wednesday evening.

The Chargers, the co-automatic qualifiers from the Coastal Plains Independent Conference, drew the No. 3 seed and an opening-round home game against North Hills Christian. First pitch is 4:30 p.m.

The Eagles, who earned the AQ from the Carolina Christian Conference for the eighth consecutive season, play host to league rival Grace Christian of Sanford. It's the third meeting between the two schools in a 14-day period. Wayne Christian defeated Grace 11-10 in nine innings in the regular-season finale for both teams, and scored a 15-5 mercy-rule win in the CCC tournament championship game.

Wayne Country Day's girls' soccer team drew the No. 9 seed and open play on the road at Trinity School of Durham-Chapel Hill on Friday. Trinity defeated the Chargers earlier this season.
