All roads lead to Mt. Pleasant on this big Friday game day. The Lady Cats’ softball team will be playing for at least a share of the district championship against the Lady Tigers as both teams wrap up district play. The Lady Cats defeated Mt. Pleasant at home earlier this season, 10-4. Both teams are tied with Texas High for first. Texas High is playing Greenville in another district finale. The top three teams all have 9-2 records in district play. The Lady Cats are 22-6 for the season. The Lady Cats could slip down to third place with a road loss Friday evening.
Meanwhile the Wildcats’ baseball team also finds itself tied for first place in the district with Hallsville as they meet Mt. Pleasant Friday night. The Wildcats and Hallsvill each have one district loss. The Wildcats have an 8-1 record in district play. They edged by Mt. Pleasant, 3-2 at Eagle Stadium behind the pitching of Triston McCormick back on March 28. The Wildcats have a 14-6-1 season record. They still have district games next week as they host Greenville on senior night Tuesday and then travel to Hallsville on Friday for a game that could be for all the district marbles.
