Anna downed Krum, 10-3, on Monday at Denton Braswell High School to advance to the regional-semifinal playoff round for the first time in school history.
“This was big for our program!” Coyotes head coach Vince Sharp said. “We have made strides every year and now we have a new first. It’s pretty exciting for this program and for these kids. They have worked hard and deserve every bit of success they achieve.”
