Light Finally Shines on Lady Scots
Playing under the lights for the first time on its home field, the Highland Park softball team polished off the historic night with a 9-4 victory over Ferris on Tuesday.
The Lady Scots (1-1) held a pre-game ceremony in which the team captains along with former HPHS girls athletic director Jerry Sutterfield flipped the switch to illuminate the field.
Next up, HP will put the field and the lights to good use during the Lady Scots Tournament beginning Thursday.
As part of the round-robin format, the Lady Scots will face South Garland (11:30 a.m. Thursday), Garland (8 a.m. Friday), North Garland (4:45 p.m. Friday), Parish Episcopal (8 a.m. Saturday), and Garland Lakeview Centennial (1:15 p.m. Saturday).
The tournament field also includes Pinkston and Richardson. A complete schedule of games can be found after the jump.
