La Feria currently sits on top of District 32-4A with a stellar 5-0 record.

The Lionettes have had their fair share of competition in the past from teams such as Rio Hondo, Port Isabel, and Raymondville, But La Feria has taken on challenges of all kinds and has shown that they can tangle with some of the Valley’s Best and still remain the number one seed in District 32-4A,

La Feria then defeated Grulla 17-1 on March 22 and then Hidalgo 19-8 on March 25. La Feria then faced off against a tough Port Isabel Lady Tarpons in a close one 4-2 on March 29 to remain perfect through the first half of district play.

So what lies in store for the Lionettes in the second half? La Feria will kick off round two of district play against Rio Hondo on April 1.
