Spring fever is a common thing for many people in late April when the weather begins to stay warmer.

Since softball was adopted as a UIL sport, this is the first time for the Lady Mustangs (20-13) and the Mustangs (15-12) to both advance to the playoffs. In fact, in that 17-year span prior to 2013, each of the programs had gone to the playoffs just three times. But thatâ€™s all changed.
