The Barbers Hill softball team clinched a 2-0 series sweep of Manvel with a dominant 9-0 victory over Manvel Friday night in a Class 5A Region 3 bi-district playoff series.

Barbers Hill (33-2) scored five times in the second inning to take a comfortable edge after two innings and pitcher Sophia Simpson - a University of Texas signee -  struck out 15 over six, no-hit innings to cement the team’s advancement to next week’s area round of the postseason.
