Spartans aim for breakthrough vs. Ranch
Cy Ranch and Cy Lakes are playing second varsity seasons, and are among the top teams in 17-5A softball, and the young programs meet this week with the district race nearing its midpoint.
Cy Ranch swept Cy Lakes last season, so the Lady Spartans are looking for a first-ever victory against the Lady Mustangs, and for both, a win is another step towards a historic playoff berth.
