The JV softball team opened up their season strong with 2 big wins against Napoleon. Game 1 was back and forth most of the game until the bottom of the 7th inning when Ashley Sturgill hit a walk off single to put the Panthers in front 12-11. Sturgill also received the win on the mound as well as going 5-5 at the plate with 4 singles & a double. Riley Kubiak had a great night at the plate going 3-3 with 2 singles and a triple. Chloe Hoxie added 2 hits.
Game 2 was a different story for the Panthers. We came out ready to hit scoring 12 runs in the 1st inning and 9 in the second. The final score was 21-4 at the end of the 3rd to give Western the victory. Ashley Sturgill and Olivia Vowels each had 2 hits. And the rest of the panthers each added a hit as well! Aurora Lynch received the win on the mound in game 2, striking out 4.
Tonight was a great start to our season. We will be back in action on Thursday at Northwest!
