A huge crowd was on hand at Pleasant Grove Middle School this past Friday night as the boys baseball and girls softball teams were both in playoff action.

It proved to be a festive night as both teams won the openers of best of three series. The Lady Hawks went on to take the second game in Bullard, Texas, on Saturday to advance to the Region semi-finals.

The girls will play Celina is a one game playoff set for this Thursday night at 6PM in Bonham. If they win that game the Lady Hawks would play the following week in the region final.

Meanwhile the PG boys baseball team took two in a row to knock Wills Point out of the playoffs. The Hawks won game one at home 11-1, and then took game two on the road 5-1.

Next up for the boys is the region quarterfinal best of three series against rival Pittsburgh. Game One is scheduled for Thursday night at Pleasant Grove with the first pitch at 7PM. Game Two, and if necessary Game Three, would be Friday in Pittsburgh. The first pitch will be 5PM. A third game also would follow against the Pirates.

Good luck to both the Hawks and Lady Hawks as they continue their 2016 playoff journey.
