Lady Toppers on the playoff road

The Houston Lady Toppers just weren’t ready to quit playing ball yet.
The young team battled through the regular season and clinched their division to extend their lead to playoffs which began Tuesday. Due to press times and game times, updates will be available at and in next week’s edition of the paper.
The girls got in one more round of practice last weekend, hosting the North/South shootout and although things didn’t exactly go their way, coach Jeffrey Mann has confidence in their abilities.
The Lady Toppers have a long history of playoffs and placed as slow-pitch division champs in 2004, 2010 and 2012. Mann wants to keep that tradition going.
“The girls represent our school well with their playoff consistency,” Mann said. “I’m really proud of the girls.”
The Lady Toppers started the journey on the playoff road hosting Corinth.
“We have a tough first round, but my girls can play with anybody,” Mann said. “I hope we play well and show what we are capable of.”
The winner of Tuesday’s best-of-three will advance to round two Saturday.web soft hst
