After going 2-2 against No. 1 Southmoore during the regular season, No. 3 Westmoore is hoping it gets another shot in the championship game Tuesday during the Class 6A state slowpitch softball tournament.
“That would be what we would like to do,” Westmoore coach Steve Schwartz said. “Me and (Southmoore coach Jason) Lingo are good buddies, so we would sure enjoy that. That would be great.”
The matchup can only happen in the title game, though.
Westmoore opens Tuesday at The Ballfields at Firelake in Shawnee at 10 a.m. against defending champion Tulsa Union, while top-seeded Southmoore opens at 2:30 p.m. against Broken Arrow.
The Jaguars are led by senior pitcher Destinie Lookout, who has signed with Oklahoma. She is hitting an incredible .747 with 31 home runs and 86 RBIs.
“She can hit them home runs, but her average is so much better this year,” Schwartz said. “When that wind is blowing in and stuff, last year she just popped out. This year she’s hitting line drives down the line instead of popping out.”
Southmoore, meanwhile, is being led by sophomore Arielle James, who is hitting .542 with 15 homers and 65 RBIs.
