AURORA -- The Class 5A, 4A and 3A state softball tournaments will remain at the Aurora Sports Park this fall.

CHSAA and the Sports Park completed an agreement Tuesday morning, meaning the tournaments will stay where they have been hosted since 2002.

"We are very fortunate to have the working relationship that we do -- not only with the Park itself, but the people at Aurora Sports Park -- to continue hosting our tournament at a venue where all three classifications can be spotlighted," said CHSAA assistant commissioner Bud Ozzello, who oversees softball.

The softball tournaments are played on 12 fields across three different complexes at the Aurora Sports Park each October. This year's event is Oct. 17-18.

Snow delayed last year's tournament one day.

Defending champions are Legacy (5A), Wheat Ridge (4A) and Strasburg (3A).
