PAMPA-Through two rounds of District 1-3A play, it is known which three teams are going to make it to the playoffs, but who will end up as the district champions is still up in the air.

On Sunday, the Frank Phillips College Lady Plainsmen softball team took one step closer to making the Region V Tournament by getting the split with Western Texas College in WJCAC action.
In game one of the series, the Lady Plainsmen jumped out early by scoring nine runs in the first inning on their way to a 12-2 win. The big inning gave the Lady Plainsmen pitcher a big cushion to work with and the pitcher took advantage of it by giving up just two runs on four hits through five innings.
