Playoff brackets were released on Friday for baseball, softball and girls lacrosse. A handful of East End teams advanced to their respective postseasons.

Baseball

The Pierson/Bridgehampton baseball team qualified for the Suffolk County Class C Championship after finishing the regular season with a 16-4 League IX record, finishing in second place behind undefeated Southold, which the Whalers will face for the county championship. The Settlers swept Pierson in all four games this season, but the most recent game on May 4 was a tight 2-0 contest.

The best-of-three Class C Championship begins Monday, May 15, at Southold at 4 p.m. Game two will be in Sag Harbor at Mashashimuet Park the following day at 4 p.m., and if a third game is necessary it will be played Thursday, May 18, back in Southold at 4 p.m.

The Southampton baseball team shared the League VIII title with Mattituck after both finished with 15-5 records. The Mariners were seeded fifth in the Class A double-elimination playoffs and will play their first round matchup at No. 4 Mount Sinai on Tuesday, May 16, at 4 p.m. The winner of that game will play the winner of No. 1 Shoreham/Wading River/No. 8 Harborfields on Wednesday, May 17, at the higher seed's home location. The loser of Tuesday's game will play the loser of No. 2 Sayville/No. 7 Bayport/Blue Point in an elimination game on Wednesday, May 17, at the higher seed's home location.

Softball

Westhampton Beach was the only East End softball team to reach the double-elimination postseason. The Lady Hurricanes (12-6 League IX) were seeded sixth in the Class A bracket and will play at Miller Place, the third seed, on Wednesday, May 17, at 4 p.m.

The winner of that game will play the winner of No. 2 Shoreham/Wading River/No. 7 Comsewogue on Saturday, May 20. The loser will play the loser of Shoreham/Comsewogue on Friday, May 19, at the higher seed's home location.

Girls Lacrosse

Since Miller Place and Westhampton Beach tied in the Division III standings with 7-5 records, a Section XI committee had to decide which teams would be the fifth and sixth seeds in the Class C playoffs. The Lady Hurricanes were awarded the fifth seed and will play at Sayville, the fourth seed, on Tuesday, May 23, at 4 p.m. Miller Place was given the sixth and final seed and has to play at No. 3 Shoreham/Wading River.

The winner of Sayville/Westhampton will advance to the county semifinal at top seed Mount Sinai on Thursday, May 25, at 4 p.m. There will be a $6 admission fee to that game to cover security and site costs.
