The battle of Lakeville offers up great drama in every sport, but the intracity softball showdowns this spring figure to be must-see action, starting with Monday's game at South.

Top-ranked Lakeville North, with senior all-state selections in pitcher Michaela Zins and catcher Erika Rozell, already has been annointed as the team most likely to knock defending Class 3A champ Elk River from its perch.

But don't dismiss the chances of Lakeville South, which also cracks the state's preseason top 10 (at No. 10) and features a standout pitcher of its own in Kylie Stober.
