LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Coronado softball team has put together an impressive playoff run as they find themselves in the 5A regional final this weekend.

First Year Head Coach Nancy Sawyers is proud of the Lady Mustangs.

"They have a good mentality right now. They're excited to get going and have the opportunity to play one more week."

Coronado saw their impressive 22 straight years of winning the District Championship from 1996-2017 come to an end as Lubbock Cooper won District. However, the Coronado Lady Mustangs are the only team in District still playing this late in the playoffs.

"We were definitely disappointed. These kids have bigger and better dreams and so they're chasing that right now."

Rallying from losing game 1 in 3 of their playoff series to win two on Saturday, Coronado finds themselves in the 5A Regional Final against No. 2 Arlington Heights (35-2-1) with Game 1 7:30 p.m. Thursday night at ACU.
