From Nashua to Plymouth, from 10 a.m. until well into the night, high school athletes are scheduled to compete for NHIAA division championships today in baseball, softball and boys’ volleyball.

Beyond the borders, most of the state’s top track and field athletes will compete for regional titles at Bridgewater State University in southeastern Massachusetts.

All four baseball division finals will take place at Manchester’s Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, home of the minor-league New Hampshire Fisher Cats, with the top-seeded teams in Division III — Campbell of Litchfield and Somersworth, respectively — scheduled to open play at 10 a.m.

Baseball

With showers in the forecast until early afternoon, weather could be a factor, though the NEDD is known to have excellent drainage. As of Friday, the NHIAA had no timetable for a decision on whether to delay play.

The rest of the baseball schedule includes No. 2 Sunapee and No. 8 Gorham in the Division IV final at 1 p.m., fifth-seeded Londonderry and No. 3 Pinkerton Academy of Derry in the Division I championship at 4, and top-seeded Goffstown vs. No. 3 Plymouth in the Division II final at 7.

Softball

Two finals each will take place at Plymouth State and Southern New Hampshire universities.

At Plymouth State, No. 2 Wilton-Lyndeborough is scheduled to face No. 4 Portsmouth Christian Academy in the Division IV final at 2 p.m., followed by No. 1 White Mountains Regional of Whitefield and No. 3 Campbell at 4.

At SNHU, top-ranked Coe-Brown Northwood Academy and No. 7 John Stark Regional of Weare are set to square off for the Division II championship at 4:30 p.m., with the Division I final between No. 1 Spaulding of Rochester and No. 3 Dover to follow at 7.

Boys’ volleyball

One final that shouldn’t be affected by weather is the boys’ volleyball match between perennial champion Salem and third seed Timberlane Regional of Plaistow, set to take place indoors at Nashua High North, beginning at 6 p.m.

Salem (17-1) is looking to continue its run of winning every title since the NHIAA first sanctioned volleyball as a boys’ sport in 2004. Timberlane enters the final at 16-4.

Track and field

Athletes from all three track and field divisions will be competing in Bridgewater after qualifying for the New England Interscholastic Outdoor Championships during last Saturday’s NHIAA Meet of Champions.

Seven Granite Staters enter the meet as the top seed in their respective events.

Among the girls, Coe-Brown junior Hannah Parker is No. 1 in the 800-meter run, with a top time of 2 minutes 8.42 seconds; Lebanon freshman Corinne Kennedy is ranked first in the 300-meter hurdles, with a time of 43.54 seconds; Ariel Clachar, another Coe-Brown junior, is the top seed in the long jump, at a distance of 18 feet, 1 1/2 inches; and Morgan Ferland, a junior at Fall Mountain Regional of Langdon, is No. 1 in the discus, at 127-7.

Top-seeded boys include Souhegan of Amherst senior Ben DeForest in the 110-meter hurdles, at 14.49 seconds; Lebanon senior John Cioffredi in the high jump, at 6-8 1/4; and Milford senior Alex Tamulonis in the pole vault at 14-9.
