2A Softball Reg. Qtr. Final: Troup to face district rival Harmony

LONGVIEW — Troup's playoff march will include a familiar partner this week when the Lady Tigers (27-5-2) open a Class 2A, Region III quarterfinal series with District 18-2A rival Harmony. Game 1 will start at 7 p.m. tonight at Lear Park in Longview, with Game 2 and Game 3, if needed scheduled for Saturday afternoon (1 p.m.) at Lear Park.

The winner of the Lady Tiger/Lady Eagle series will take on either Rogers or Crawford in a regional semi-final next week.
