MABANK — The Jacksonville JAXX and the Troup Coldplay were still alive Friday morning in the Texas Teenage Baseball/Softball Association Girls 12U State Tournament, which is being hashed out in Mabank.

Each of the outfits had one loss each in the double-elimination event.

Jacksonville topped the Athens Lady Cats on Wednesday before suffering their first loss at the hands of the Belton Punishers.

The JAXX then rebounded by thumping teams from Mildred and Whitney in elimination affairs on Thursday.  

Jacksonville was scheduled to have faced the Troup Coldplay in another lose-and-go-home contest on Friday (results unavailable as of press time).

The Coldplay Lost to Normangee's Nitro in winner's bracket play, which was Troup's first defeat of the week.

The Coldplay bounced back to nail down victories over Whitney and Grand Saline on Thursday to earn a spot opposite Jacksonville.

Frankston's Heat suffered losses to Normangee and Stephenville to end the season.
