The Moore American

Postseason has arrived

MOORE — The regular has come to an end for slow pitch. Now the fun begins for area school looking to compete for the coveted 6A state championship.

Southmoore, Westmoore and Moore each begin the postseason this week by hosting regional tournaments, which is something all three programs have become accustomed to doing.

That includes the SaberCats, who head into the playoffs as the No. 1 team in 6A.

“This is the third time in four years we have hosted a regional,” Southmoore coach Jason Lingo said. “We had to go on the road last year after hosting the previous two years. We played well on the road last year to advance to state and I fully expect us to play even better at home this season and be in the State Tournament, right where we belong.”

Southmoore’s regional includes Putnam City, Bishop McGuiness and O.C. Southeast. It will take place today at the SMH softball fields. The Cats first game is at 10 a.m. against McGuiness.

Moore also is set to start its regional tournament today against Noble, Norman and Putnam City North.

Westmoore kicks off its regional tourney Thursday with Putnam City West and Woodward. Since their is only three teams, the Jaguars have a first round bye and will play the loser of PCW and Woodward at 11:15 a.m.

“I think we look pretty good as long as we can stay healthy we have a few injuries,” Westmoore coach Steve Schwarz said. “I want us to treat regionals like the State tournament, and work on the defense and place hitting to give us a shot at the title.”

Southmoore, which won the title last year, has a wealth of experience on the team. Each looking to add to the team’s legacy by making it to state once again.
