DIBOLL, Texas (KTRE) - The Diboll Ladyjacks are on the road to the UIL State Softball Tournament for the first time in school history.

The ladies will play Holliday Wednesday in Austin.

The team was given a send-off Tuesday morning where Diboll Mayor Trey Wilkerson read a proclamation honoring the team for their accomplishments.

The team has overcome a mountain of obstacles with many key players graduating over the past two years and doctors advising coach Hayland Hardy to take the year off. Hardy suffers from a chronic lung disease and was in ICU in November of 2020 after he tested positive for COVID-19. His body did not develop antibodies.
