The Superior Panthers’ baseball team has won three of its last four games and, in the process, evened its record at 3 – 3 on the season.

After an 11 – 0 loss to Combs in the Joe S. Padilla tournament, Panthers’ players and coaches said the experience of playing against better competition in the tournament would pay dividends in the future. The future appears to be now.

Superior defeated Salt River and Duncan last week by scores of 8 – 1 and 7 – 1, respectively. The last time the Panthers won back-to-back games came last season when they swept Gilbert Classical Academy in a double-header on March 29, 2013.

With every win they get, the young Panthers’ confidence continues to grow. With the talent the younger players possess, confidence is what they need to be more consistent.

The Panthers will return to action and look to extend their winning streak with games at Bowie on March 20, at Desert Christian on March 21, and at San Carlos on March 25. The game versus Bowie begins at 3:00 p.m. All other games are scheduled to start at 4:00 p.m.
