Regional Softball Title Game Suspended

The 3A-1 Regional softball championship game in Lavaca between Atkins and Mansfield had barely begun before it was suspended due to heavy rain and lightning. The teams attempted to resume the game on Tuesday at a time to be determined.

Atkins had started Monday’s game in the top of the first by jumping out to a 4-0 lead and had the bases loaded with two outs before it was suspended.

Mansfield advanced to the regional championship game by edging Lavaca, 4-3, while Atkins beat Charleston, 6-1. In the third-place game, Lavaca beat Charleston, 9-1. All four teams will advance to the state tournament that will be played later this week.
