In what is being called a game to build on by the coach, the Jackson County fast-pitch softball team chalked up a victory in the opener.
The Lady Panthers took to the softball field Monday evening in the season opener against Clarke Central and in only four innings had crushed the opposing team 14-2.
Pitcher Haley Shinall struck out seven giving up only three hits and no earned runs.
Coach Tommy Fountain said, “Haley did a great job hitting her spots and never really got into any trouble. She basically dominated the entire game.”
According to the coach, Shinall as well as Becca Nelson, Macey Latty and Brooke Griggs all had big days at the plate. Shinall went three for four with four RBIs. Latty and Griggs both had two hits apiece and Nelson went two for four with an inside homerun and five RBIs.
