The Lady Cats Softball Team opens their first-ever Regional Semifinal Series against Lucas Lovejoy Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Rockwall.
The Lady Cats defeated Lufkin, Crandall and Huntsville to get this far. The Lady Leopards got by Frisco Wakeland, Carrollton Creekview and Frisco Heritage.
This is the fourth time the two teams have met in the playoffs. The Lady Leopards won in 2014 and 2017.
The last meeting in 2018, the Lady Cats won handily in two games by scores of 15-4 and 15-1. It is expected to be much tougher series this time.

Lovejoy won their first series with Wakeland, 2 games to 1, but since then they have won their last two series, 2 games to zero. The Lady Leopards are the runner up team in District 10-5A.
The Lady Cats are the top seed in District 15-5A and a district co-champ.
The two districts are also involved in the other regional series still going on as 15-5A #2 seed Hallsville faces the 10-5A district champ Prosper Rock Hill.
