On Monday the Lady Panthers faced Conference opponent Eureka College Red Devils.  The first game after the Panthers battled through the first three innings successfully shutting Eureka down with a score of 0-3, Eureka ignited and came out on fire during the bottom of the fourth and scored 7 runs.  Although the first game did end 7-4 Eureka, the Lady Panthers stuck with it and came back to win the second game 6-5.   In the bottom of the 7th inning Lindsey led off with a single & Mattie had rbi single that scored the win.

Tuesday’s Game verses Washington University was a rough battle for the Lady Panthers.  After a short first game, due GC’s inability to answer Washington University’s 2 runs in the 2nd inning, 4 in the third, and another 3 in the fourth.  Lady Panthers dropped both games of the double-header 8-0, 9-0. Greenville softball has unfortuately dropped five of their last six games walking into the final tournament.

Senior Night Struggles

Posted Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Although the weekend’s forecasted rain held off long enough to complete the scheduled senior night game against conference oponent Spalding, the night ended with a gloomy feeling. 

The GC Lady Panthers fell to conference rivals in both games.  While GC was able to hold the score down the hits were just not enough to get the runs in Senior night.  The first game ended with a 0-3 Spalding.  The second game proved to be a closer match up with the score again staying in the low digits, ending at 1-2 Spalding.  Greenville’s Gerig’s single in the first inning brought Doherty in for the sole Panther run of the evening.  The bottom of the second saw Spalding’s reply when Goff hit a double earning her a run batted in when Stucker score.  The last GC home game was a close battle all the way through to the seventh inning.  Spalding’s run in the sixth put them ahead by one, which became the lead that GC was unable to answer in the 7th inning. 

Even with a less than favorable outcome, a special congratulations goes out to seniors  Sara Mize and Lesley Holloway for their dedication and leadership to the GC Softball Family.
