Thursday, May 20: The Texas State Sweet 16 is very sweet for the Burges softball team. Burges has never advanced this far, but the Mustangs are ready. Burges will face #3 Denton Guyer Friday, 6:30pm MT at the Ratliff Softball Complex in Odessa. Burges is 25-5 overall, Guyer is 30-4. Burges had a slow start to the season, but that start could have helped this team come together and get to the Regional Semifinals, where they are now.
Senior Right Fielder Hannah Perkins said, "I think it helps to have a lot of chemistry, and we have developed that. I think at the beginning we lacked that, and then we got together and hung out, got to really know each other's strengths and weaknesses, and I think that has helped us in the end. You know, to come and to keep doing what know we can."
