West and Rogers set for playoff rematch

WEST, Texas The West and Rogers softball programs meet in the Area round of the playoffs in a rematch of a series won by Rogers last season.

Last year's playoff series was in the opening round. This year it's one round later and both teams are really good again. West is coming off a solid season, Rogers is a district champion again. So the expectation is the series should be a good one.

Rogers won in two games last season and the Lady Trojans are using that as motivation. They're also hoping the knowledge they gained about the Rogers roster will help. West head coach Guyla Smith says the Rogers pitcher was great last year and facing her this year means another big challenge for her Lady Trojans.
