The Colmesneil Lady Dogs softball team is firing on all cylinders right now, with a 22-2 overall record and a 5-0 record in district. They're undefeated in the month of March, and have beaten every team in their district by at least three runs. As of now, they're the clear favorites to be crowned the champions of district 23-1A at the end of the regular season, and seem poised to make a deep playoff run. Last Tuesday, the Lady Dogs took their 3-0 record into Broaddus, hoping to get their fourth district win of the season. Not only did Colmesneil win, but they did so in dominating fashion, much like they have all season. Ali Harvey's fifth homerun of the season propelled the Lady Dogs to a 17-1 blowout win over Broaddus. On Friday, the Lady Dogs hosted the Big Sandy Wildcats. In a game that could have major ramifications on the district seeding's, the Lady Dogs did what they've done all season long, blowing out the now 3-2 Wildcats by a score of 7-0. The Lady Dogs defense was stellar, not allowing a single runner to come home. Offensively, the Lady Dogs consistently put runners on base and in scoring position. Megan Allen's late game homerun sealed the deal, giving the Lady Dogs a perfect 5-0 record. Colmesneil's next game will be on Friday, March 29, at 2 p.m. against the Zavalla Lady Eagles.

Colmesneil's baseball team has also been on a hot streak as of late, with a 4-0 start in district. Last week, the Bulldogs outscored Broaddus and San Augustine by a combined score of 36-1, routing both teams in just five innings. The Bulldogs have a talented squad that not a whole lot of people know about, but they're the clear favorites to win their second straight district championship. The Bulldogs will host Zavalla for the first time this season on Friday, March 29 at 2 p.m.
