The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association announced that it moved back the state softball tournament.

The state tournament was originally scheduled to be played Tuesday, but it was moved due to the forecasted weather in Oklahoma. The OSSAA then scheduled state for Thursday but had to reschedule again.

Now, the two area teams competing are set to play Tuesday of next week.

The Amber-Pocasset Lady Panthers are scheduled for a 1 p.m. game Tuesday against Strother.

Am-Po is ranked seventh in Class 3A. The Lady Panthers rolled through the district portion of the postseason, beating Elmore City-Pernell once and Healdton twice. Am-Po allowed just two runs in the district tournament.

Am-Po then went 2-1 at the regional tournament, advancing to the state tournament with a win over Mooreland in an elimination game.

Strother is ranked fourth in Class 3A. Strother swept through the district tournament and regional tournament, advancing to state with a 5-0 playoff record.

The winner of Am-Po and Strother will play the winner of No. 1 Rattan and Barnsdall.
