Although Allen was excited about the break, she said she had mixed emotions. But she added that she and her teammates would still be on campus hitting, throwing and working out to stay sharp.
"(The long break) makes me nervous, but I know we'll just come back and be as good as we were today," she said.
Tarver said he is encouraging his girls to take the time to relax and rest so that they can come back in a week refreshed and ready to roll through the rest of the season. After the first chunk of their schedule, Tarver said the Lady Rams have earned some time off.
"After three tournament weekends in a row, six games in each tournament, a little fatigue sets in every once in a while," he said. "This is the first time in 17 years of softball that we're going to take the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of spring break off.
"We'll see how it goes. I've talked to some other coaches that have been doing it a long time. The Iowa Park coach is a good friend of mine and he always does and thinks it's much needed rest for the girls. So, we're going to try it out. Hopefully we come back, Monday, refreshed and excited about softball."
First pitch of the Lake Worth game is set for 7:30 p.m.
