West High School competes in regional softball tournament in E. Texas

ATHENS, TX (KLTV) -

The West High School girl's softball team visited East Texas on Friday evening vying for a regional championship, just weeks after a fertilizer blew up in their home town, destroying numerous homes and businesses and killing 14 people. 

Some of the players lost their homes. Four of them lost family members in the blast. 

The team is in Athens to compete in the regional tournament. 

People across East Texas have been inspired by the team. Athens Independent School District raised money all week to. They planned a special presentation at tonight's game.
