On the day her squad is slated to take on Leto in the district title game, Jefferson High softball coach Eve Suarez has been hospitalized with dangerously high blood pressure, Dragons athletic director Bob Morgan said Thursday.

Morgan said he spoke with Suarez by phone and said the veteran coach is stable but may not be able to attend tonight’s Class 6A-District 11 championship game at Leto. The Dragons have played back-to-back games in the tournament, including Wednesday night’s 5-3 victory over Sickles in the semifinals.

Suarez, a teacher at Jefferson, is in her seventh season as softball coach. Her squad enters tonight’s game with a record of 11-8.
