Sulphur Springs softball and baseball teams are not immune to the team fighting for position in the standings.
The Sulphur Springs Lady Cats are 5-1 after six games and end the first half of district being pursued. They’re on the radar of every team in the district, especially after knocking Texas High from the upbeaten ranks in loop play. Then the Wildcats pounded Mount Pleasant, 8-1 in Tuesday action.
“We were able to hit the ball well and take advantage of there mistakes,” SSHS head softball coach David Carrillo said of the last action. “Our pitching and defense was once again solid. We just need to continue to take one game at a time. I have emphasized all year that no one person is above the team. We need to keep working and realize it has taken all of us to get to this point. It should be an interesting second round.”

The Marshall girls are 4-2 and currently in third place in the softball race.
The Wildcats will trek to Marshall for a 6 p.m. baseball matchup with the Mavericks. The JV and freshmen host Marshall today beginning at 4 p.m.

The Mavs are 1-2 in district play and fighting to stay in the middle of the pack. Undefeated Hallsville remains tied with Texas High for the district lead.
