  San Manuel freshman Jazmyne Waddell tossed a two-hit shutout against defending 1A State Champion Superior last Thursday, leading the way to the Lady Miners’ 10 – 0 victory.

  The ace of the San Manuel staff improved to 3 – 1 and maintained her 0.00 ERA after surrendering only two hits with a walk and 10 strikeouts, the second time in as many games that she whiffed 10 batters.

  San Manuel scored three runs in the first, second and fifth innings with a single run in the fourth.

  San Manuel senior Taya Dockum went 3-for-4 at the plate, including two doubles, with three RBI’s while Waddell added two hits – one a homerun – with four RBI’s. Junior Samantha Waddell was 2-for-3, including a double, and Aubrey Encinas also doubled. In total, the Lady Miners knocked five extra-base hits.

  The Pantherettes, who suffered only their second defeat of the season (both against 2A teams), were limited to hits by senior Lindsay Ketron and freshman Danika Bryant.

  Superior up next:  Mar. 20 at Ray. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.

  San Manuel up next:  Mar. 20 vs. San Miguel, Mar. 21 at St. Augustine, and Mar. 26 at Globe. All games are scheduled for 4 p.m.
