On Friday, the Stephenville Yellow Jackets will board buses to Midland where they will compete in the 4A Division II regional semifinals at 4 p.m. against Canyon Randall at Grande Communications Stadium.

A community-wide sendoff is planned for the players at 7:45 a.m. in the SHS parking lot. Buses are scheduled to leave by 8 a.m. and supporters are encouraged to get there between 7:30-7:45.

"We are encouraging fans to bring their cans and help us send off the players," said Kristi Washington, with the Varsity Moms. "This is an exciting time for our boys and the entire community."

Wednesday is the last day to get advance tickets. Tickets will be on sale from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at TexasBank for $4 for students and $6 for adults. All tickets at the gate are $8.

Those making the estimated four-hour trek to Midland are encouraged to dress warm. Friday's forecast is calling for sunny skies and a high of 53 degrees.
