SLOAN, Iowa (KTIV) -

The Iowa state softball tournament starts Monday in Fort Dodge. Seven Siouxland teams are making the trip to Rogers Park.

Among those that waited the longest to make it to state, is Westwood, who's making their first appearance in a decade.

The No. 7 Rebels punched their ticket to Fort Dodge with a resounding 13-1 win over Remsen St. Mary's.
    
Westwood is the No. 4 seed in the Class 1A tournament, and opens play on Monday against fifth-seeded Colfax-Mingo.
    
The Rebels are hoping to make some noise in just their second-ever state tournament.

"We've got to come out hitting, and if we come out hitting, we'll do perfectly fine," said junior Brooklyn Topf. "When we do, we can score those runs like crazy, because we run the bases amazing."

"We did so good all season, and it finally paid off."

"I have a really good defense behind me, so if I give up a hit, I know they'll be right behind me to field it," said sophomore Katelyn Martian.

Westwood plays Colfax-Mingo at 1:00 p.m. on Monday.
