The Superior softball team extended its season-opening winning streak to five games and remains undefeated so far this season. The Panthers defeated Salt River and Duncan last week in extending the streak.

Sophomore Ivie Lopez pitched a complete game in the 11 – 3 win over Salt River last Tuesday. Lopez allowed 4 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, and 6 K to earn the victory.

The Panthers’ offense knocked out 13 hits, including 2 homeruns and 3 doubles. Sophomores Ariana San Miguel and Gabby Salcido each homered in the game while also recording a multi-hit game. Junior Hunter Flanagan was 4-for-4 with 2 RBI against the Eagles.

Against Duncan, the Panthers’ offense continued to roll as they pounded out 10 hits, including 5 doubles, as they cruised past the Wildkats, 16 – 4. Hunter Flanagan was the winning pitcher with 5 IP, 8 H, 4 ER, 1 BB, and 7 K. Phalicitee Thomas was 2-for-2 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI. Hunter Flanagan and Ariel Alonzo each had 2 hits in the game.

The Panthers will look to extend their winning streak on the road beginning March 21 at Desert Christian followed by a game at San Carlos on March 25. Both games begin at 4:00 p.m.
