It couldn’t have started off any better for Panther softball Thursday evening, as they got to win their first game of 2019 at the comfort of their still very new turf field. Not only was it a win but an absolute 13-2 thrashing against a meager North Knox team.

South got the bats going from the start as they got off to a 2-0 lead after the first inning. This would be as close as the game would get, as the Panthers exploded in for seven runs in the fourth inning. Senior Lizzie Halstead, along with junior Jasper Sons led the way as they each had two RBIs and two runs. Senior Mary Wright also contributed three runs batted in off of one hit.

“We capitalized off their mistakes more than anything,” Sons said. “[Our team] was loud the whole game, and I think that really helped us play better. It shows what kind of group we have when we go a whole game without the dugout getting quiet.”

South’s game on Saturday against Columbus East  was cancelled to due wet field conditions; however, there is still plenty of upcoming action for South softball.

April games kick off on Tuesday April 1 at Edgewood, then Thursday April 4 against Martinsville and finally they close the week on Saturday April 6 against Shakamak.
