The Panthers’ softball team has won its first three games of the season without a loss. They defeated Hayden last week for their third win in-a-row, 12 – 5.

Phalicitee Thomas hit 2 triples to lead the Panthers’ offensive attack. Cierra Navarrette had 2 of the team’s 14 hits, including a triple of her own. In addition to Thomas and Navarrette, Hunter Flanagan, Elizabeth Ochoa, and Ariel Alonzo each recorded a multi-hit game. Alonzo had 4 RBIs while Ochoa drove in 3 runs.

Sophomore Ivie Lopez took the mound and pitched a complete game to earn the win. She allowed 6 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, and 5 K in 7 IP.

The Panthers will look to extend their winning streak with a game at Salt River on March 11 (results not available at press time) and a home contest versus Duncan on March 13. The games start at 4 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., respectively.
