SHOWCASE SHOWDOWN: Lady Hawks, Lady Panthers set for key district battle

Two weeks into the District 32-6A softball season and the Harlingen South Hawks and Weslaco Lady Panthers have proven to be the early frontrunners for the league crown as they are tied atop the standings at 4-0.

Something will give today, however, as the two face off at 7 p.m. at Lady Hawk Field.

Last week, the Lady Hawks got wins over Brownsville Hanna and San Benito while the Lady Panthers beat Harlingen High and Brownsville Rivera.
