Crawford softball looking for regional championship berth

CRAWFORD, Texas The Crawford softball team is back in a familiar place, on the verge of going to Austin and the state's final four. Crawford needs a win this week and another next week to make it happen.

Crawford plays a one game series this week against Sam Rayburn. If they win that game in Waxahachie Thursday night, they move on to next week's state regional championship round.

Beating Sam Rayburn will not be easy according to Crawford head coach Kirk Allen. The Lady Pirates will be facing a pitcher that throws hard and has amassed a lot of strikeouts this season. So Allen says his team needs to put the ball in play to have a chance to win.
