In a rematch of last year’s regional quarterfinals series, the Aledo Bearcats will face the Birdville Hawks in a best-of-3 regional quarterfinal series that begins today.
Weather has forced a change in the series schedule. The opening game game of the series will be played at 7:30 p.m. today at Glen Rose High School.

Rider is the No. 1 seed from District 5-5A.
Bearcats head coach Chad Barry said the strength of the Raiders is a deep pitching rotation, led by left-handed ace Alec Lemon.
He said offensively Rider has patience at the plate and tries to take advantage of its speed on the base paths.
Aledo senior Mary Myers swatted three hits and classmate Ashton Adkins added a home run as the state-ranked No. 1 Ladycats recorded 16 hits en route to a 15-0 victory over Burleson Friday night in a regional quarterfinal playoff at Colleyville Heritage High School.
