A good number of supporters turned out Friday afternoon (May 14) at around 1 P.M. to give the Lady Cats Softball Team a send off to their game 2 of the Regional Quarterfinal Series with Huntsville in Rusk Friday evening.
The Lady Cats bus was escorted to the city limits by Sulphur Springs Police, Campus police, a Sulphur Springs Fire Department truck and several EMS vehicles.
From the parking lot outside Lady Cat Park, the route went out onto Highway 19 south to Wildcat Way, then east to Highway 154 and south to the city limits.
The team bus then continued on toward Rusk with a food stop in between.
At the send off, present were School Superintendent Michael Lamb, a large number of students, along with parents, grandparents and other fans.
Lady Cats Softball Coach Davis Carrillo said the Lady Cats are very deserving of the attention they are getting. He said he was ready for the game tonight and added he was sure the Lady Cats were too.
Game 2 is in Rusk at 6:30 p.m. If the Lady Cats win the series, they will make history as the first Lady Cats Softball Team to ever make it to round four, to a Regional Semifinal game.
The Lady Cats lead the series with Huntsville, 1-0 after winning 1-0 Wednesday evening. The series winner will face the Lovejoy and Frisco Heritage winner in the Regional Semifinal next week.
