Fall just short of state championship


History has been made by the Hughes Springs Lady Mustangs softball team. Although they all would have wished for the outcome to be in their favor, the team made history by advancing to the state championship game for the first time in school history. After mowing down playoff opponents Cooper (17-0), Beckville (10-0), Hooks (18-7), Pilot Point (14-2), and New Boston (11-5), the Lady Mustangs made their second trip in as many seasons to the state tournament, held in Austin each year.

In the team’s semi-final game, held May 30 at McCombs Field on the campus of the University of Texas, the Lady Mustangs drew the Grandview Lady Zebras. Grandview entered the matchup with a 40-1 record. The two teams had met previously this season during the Johnson County Clash, with Grandview taking the win, 5-2.
