Lady Horns finish No. 1 in the state
The greatest regular season in the 26-year-history of Lady Longhorn softball wrapped up with a scenario befitting the greatest of all sports fables. So move over 1966 NCAA basketball champion Texas Western, you too 1960 U.S. hockey team that upset the Soviet Union in the Olympics finale and step aside Secretariat, greatest race horse of all time — make room in sports annals for the 2012 Lady Longhorns. The group will long be remembered as the finest ever and the first PHS softball team to finish the regular season undefeated. Moreover, the team for the first time in Longhorn history has nailed down the No. 1 power point seed, which means in the state championships, they’re the favorite to pocket all the marbles.
