Ardmore Softball returns to state, looking for title

The Ardmore Lady Tigers softball team will play in the State Tournament for the first time since 2003.

The Lady Tigers were very close to reaching this goal last season. Ardmore made it all the way to the region final. They left little doubt this time, winning 10-0 in regionals to advance to the final 8.

Ardmore is led by sixth year head coach Charli Crawford, who has developed this team into the state contender that is has become.

"Just watching them, being able to accomplish this in that time frame is something I will never forget," Crawford said.

The Lady Tigers will begin play at state on Thursday when they take on Pryor in the quarterfinal round.
