Time to get serious

MOORE — The warm-up is done and now the real season begins for area fastpitch teams. The regional round in class 6A kick-off this week with the winner earning a spot in next week’s state championship tournament.

Westmoore has never away with the gold ball in fastpitch. But in order to even get a chance to play for it, it must first go on the road and fight its way out of a tough Mustang regional.

“I don’t mind our bracket,” Westmoore coach Jenny Rollins said. “I feel like there are strong teams in our bracket, however we played solid teams all year to prepare for this. It’s up to the girls. They are a talented group of kids and I would be happy to take them to any regional. I know when we are playing at our best we can play with anybody.”

The Jaguars (23-9) are the No. 2 seed and will face-off with Putnam City in the opening round at 2 p.m. Thursday. Mustang and Del City are on the other side of the bracket. Only one team from each regional advances to state.

Southmoore also hits the road Thursday and makes it way to No. 3 Yukon. The second-seeded SaberCats (19-7) take on MidWest City at 2 p.m. The Millers and Norman North play at Noon.

The Cats did not face Midwest City or Yukon during the regular season. They were 2-0 against the Timberwolves.

The only area team hosting a regional this week is Moore, which begins competition today. It will host Eisenhower at 2 p.m. while Lawton High and Putnam City North take the field at Noon.

“We have Lawton in our districts so we have seen them play,” MHS coach Stephanie Riley said. “They have continued to get better throughout the year. We have not played Ike or PCN yet this year, so we will be ready with our “A” game no matter what. Any given team can have a great game at any given moment.”
