Senior Kate Faber and McAlester are scheduled on Thursday to travel to Collinsville for the regional tournament. 

McAlester can advance to state on Friday.

The Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association released the Class 5A regional assignments on Monday, and the Lady Buffaloes (13-11) are scheduled to travel to Collinsville. 

Thursday's scheduled game against Tulsa Hale in the first round will be McAlester's first game since an Oct. 1 10-0 loss against Oktaha. Monday's scheduled game at Broken Bow was cancelled due to both teams preparing for regionals, according to a Tuesday morning text from McAlester athletic director John Homer.

McAlester only faced one of its three opponents during the regular season: Will Rogers. The Lady Buffs swept a Sept. 17 doubleheader, 30-4 and 18-0.

The following is the complete bracket for the Collinsville regional.
