The Lady Mustangs have had a whirlwind season so far this year, and it has been a year that fans get wrapped up in their games. These girls are full of action and take it to the wire. This past week, however, the Lady Mustangs had a tough time on the diamond going 1-2. Teams threw up some barbwire, and the Lady Mustangs got stuck in it. First up was a rematch with South Harrison which the Lady Mustangs were ramped up for. The Ladies hit the field with two of their players on the sick list. The Lady Mustangs took it to South Harrison but just couldn’t pull out the win, losing the game 10-8. Next was Midland Trail, and it would prove to be the Lady Mustang waterloo. The Lady Mustangs scored the first run and that was it; their bats iced up and they lost again 11-1. This put a serious bad taste in their mouths that a shot of yellow root juice couldn’t get rid of. It was on to Valley and time to get back to Lady Mustang softball, and that they did. They were bending bats and knocking the leather off the ball with some great defense and offense. When it was over, the lady Mustangs were back on the winning track winning the game 18- 10. That game ended regular season for the Lady Mustangs, and now it is on to the championship tournament. They will once again meet the Lady Bears of Summersville at home on Tuesday night; a win here moves them on, a loss, well it would be time to look for next season. Come out and support the Lady Mustangs
Regular season has ended for the CCMS Mustang baseball team who waged a war on the diamond all season. As a team, they finished with just one win for the season. They finished their season with a tough to swallow loss against Valley. They just couldn’t seem to get into a groove as mistakes added up to the eventual loss. Valley came out, jumped on the pitches and never looked back. It has been a decent year for the team – they went out played the game and gave it all they had for the fans. When the bats are put away, that’s all one can ask. I am sure the team is disappointed, but they will be back next season ready to hit the diamond once again. Their championship tournament will begin this week on Monday away at Ravenswood.
The track team put their skills to the test at the Roane Raider Classic. The boys’ team placed an overall 2nd and the girls placed 3rd. Brooke Cliver took top shot winning 1st in the shot put and 3rd in the discus. Cheyenne Taylor was 2nd in the long jump, and Jayda Stricker took 2nd in the 400 meter dash. For the boys, it was Justin Nida taking 1st in the 100 meter hurdles and 2nd in the 200 meter hurdles. Seth Robinson took 2nd in the 100 meter, 200 meter and 400 meter, and 2nd in the shot put. They will be back in action on Tuesday at Roane once again. Their season is also winding down with the championships at Roane on May 13th.
