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.

West Texas High was sitting in third place alone in the District standings Friday, but after a 17-12 loss to the Irish in Stinnett yesterday, things are looking messy. It was a one point game until the top of the sixth, when things went bad for WT. They were trailing 8-7 when Alex Ramirez walked 2, hit 2, and the Irish also banged out four hits to take a 16-7 lead the Comanches couldnâ€™t overcome.
