Many of Highland Park’s current starters were on the field when Rockwall blasted the Lady Scots in two playoff games to end last season.
So there will be plenty of motivation for HP during tonight’s rematch against the only team ever to eliminate the Lady Scots from postseason play. The one-game area-round matchup is set for 7:30 p.m. tonight at Wylie High School.
Last season included several milestones for HP, with its first playoff appearance in program history followed by a postseason victory in the bi-district round. Then the Lady Jackets outscored the Lady Scots by a combined 30-0 in an area-round sweep.
This spring finds HP as the District 10-6A champions, hoping their year of improvement and postseason experience will pay dividends this time around.
Last weekend, the Lady Scots (18-8) shut out W.T. White twice, while Rockwall cruised past Copperas Cove. The Lady Jackets (19-9) finished second in District 11-6A during the regular season.
The winner of Friday’s game will face either Lake Highlands or Waco Midway next week in the Region II quarterfinals.
