The Varsity Baseball team opened up their season last night versus the Somerset Bulldogs. The Panthers came away with a dominating 7-1 victory. Leading the pitching staff and picking up the win was Jared Laque. Great performances on the mound also came from Javi Gonzalez, Tanner Haby, and JJ Marty.
At the plate Bobby Peterson, Tyler Mangum, and Tanner Haby picked up two hits each. RBI leaders were Bobby Peterson and Whitt Joyce with 2 and Jake Herb with 1. Whitt belted a two-run homerun in the third inning.
On the basepaths, Thomas Pardo led the team with two stolen bases, while Ethan Garza reached base all three times on walks.
The win was a great team effort and every member of the squad contributed. The Panthers travel to Marion Friday to open up the Bulldog Tournament.
