With the regular season complete, now the Carl Albert State College softball team can focus on the next stage â€” the Region II Tournament.
The Lady Vikings will meet the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M Lady Norse at 1 p.m. this afternoon in the opening round of the Region II Tournament at Oklahoma City's Hall of Fame Stadium.
While the Lady Vikings' record (16-32) is not what all had hoped it would be, Carl Albert Coach David Holt believes the team is peaking.
â€śWe're playing our best softball right now without a shadow of a doubt,â€ť Holt said. â€śWe've won six of our last eight games. The girls are excited about this tournament. They've been really working hard. We're playing our best softball right now. We just dug ourselves a hole early in the season, and we ended up getting the No. 7 seed in the tournament. So, we dug ourselves a hole early, but we're playing well right now.â€ť
