The Lady Red got a two-run home run from Mason Jefffries in the first inning, and a solo shot from Taylor Dodson to defeat the Lawton McArthur Lady Highlanders 4-0 in the first round of the Class 5A state softball tournament.

Starting pitcher Jessica Walker struck out six and allowed three hits and five walks in the complete game shutout. The Lady Red will play again at 6 against Coweta or McAlester.

Grove Sun Sports Editor Richard Stroud will send updates throughout the tournament.
