Softball for Valentines

It’s not too early to start thinking about softball season. The MISD Varsity Softball tournament is scheduled for Thursday-Saturday at each of the five Mansfield ISD schools’ softball fields.

Some of the area and state’s finest teams will be a part of the tourney, including Keller, Odessa, Flower Mound, Rouse and Palo Duro.

Lacrosse players still sought

The Mansfield Parks and Recreation Department is still gauging the interest of Mansfield residents to begin lacrosse classes or leagues.

If you have an interest in learning the game of lacrosse – both boys and girls – contact Andrew Binz, Recreation Superintendent, at Andrew.Binz@mansfield-tx.gov.
