Volcanoes Stadium, the home of the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes of the Northwest League, is host for Class 6A through 2A finals, June 1 and 2.

Following last year's lead, the stadium is likely to see plenty of top-ranked teams involved in title games.

Last year, a team seeded No. 1 was involved in three finals, with Westview claiming the Class 6A title.

Sherwood beat Wilsonville at Class 5A in a battle of No. 3 seeds, while second seeds won at Class 4A - Astoria; 3A - Horizon Christian of Tualatin; and 2A - Stanfield.
