In the 2016 Class 1A/2A/3A series, the South beat the North 10-5 for the second straight year to increase their overall series lead to 5-3-3.  In the Class 4A/5A/6A series, the South defeated the North 7-1 in a game shortened to 5 innings to gain the series lead at 4-3-4.  All-Star rosters are also included with this release.
