GC Softball: Season Preview -- Corsicana's Tigers want to take care of unfinished business


Corsicana — GC SOFTBALL

Some of the teams in the Golden Circle will begin their softball seasons this week, but many, including Frost and Kerens, who are in the basketball playoffs, will wait to start softball. Ironically, two of the best teams, Mildred, which has won 30 district games and four district titles in a row and returns a ton of talent, and Hubbard, which made it to the regional finals and returns most of its team with the goal of  making another deep run in the Class A playoffs, are busy with basketball playoffs and will start later.

Here’s a look at the rest of the GC teams.
