---- — It didn't take long after winning Sectional 25 for the fifth-straight year last Wednesday for the Lebanon Lady Tigers to get back to business.
The team went back to practice the very next day and are now ready to face Bishop Chatard tonight in the regional.
"We had a couple practices last week after the sectional and I thought they were great practices," Lebanon head coach Steve Smith said on Monday. "It was really crisp, we came and did our jobs and the communication was good. Today we just came in and threw a little bit, hit a little bit and got ourselves ready. I think we are ready to play a game."
The Tigers are playing in the regional for the fifth-straight season.
They have won back-to-back regional titles. That experience has helped get the Tigers ready, Smith said.
"I certainly hope it is business as usual," Smith said. "I think the girls that have been in the program and have experienced this know that it is just a continuation of what we have been doing and preaching all year long. We want to take it one inning at a time. In a seven-inning game, there are seven games involved. We want to win each inning and keep our same focus."
This year the opponent will be Bishop Chatard.
