MOUNT PLEASANT — The visitors dugout was a sea of smiles after an 11-3 win Friday night by the Sulphur Springs Lady Cats.
Not only did the Lady Cats clinch the co-championship of the District 13-4A softball race with the big win, but they got the pleasure of defeating a rival.
From the beginning of the game it was evident that the home-standing Lady Tigers were no match for the Lady Cats as Sulphur Springs erupted for eight runs in the second inning.
“We’re pleased and excited to be in the playoffs. We are going to do a coin flip to see who the top seed in the district will be,” said Sulphur Springs head softball coach David Carrillo.
He remembers what it was like a few years back, growing up in Sulphur Springs and needing an outlet for his energy.
That's why the 9-year veteran of the NFL is giving back to his hometown sponsoring the second annual Damione Lewis football camp in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hopkins County.
"I found out we had a Boys and Girls Club here, I was at point in my life where I wanted to give back to the community. There was a need to give the kids something better to strive for than what they had. The Boys and Girls Club is a good place for that, so that is why I am doing it with them. I wanted to do a camp, but doing one through them worked out better for me," Lewis said.
