Panther pitcher Kaileigh Gray-Milligan (shown above, left) winds up and gets ready to deliver a pitch in Tuesday's 4A-DII regional championship game against Rock Creek. Gray-Milligan held her own in what turned into a pitcher's dual, but RV still came up just short in a 3-1 loss.
  Like a Blue Moon or Halley’s Comet, there was a rare occurrence in Tuesday’s regional championship game between the Royal Valley and Rock Creek softball teams. The Panthers, who have scored 244 runs this season (11 per game) and won 18 straight games going into the final in St. George, were held...
Panther Sarah Beam (shown above, batting) turns on a pitch and sends it for a ride in the second game of a doubleheader with Hiawatha, helping RV pick up a 15-0 run-rule victory over the Red Hawks and its 12th win in a row.
  Looking at the product on the softball field last Thursday night, the mismatch between the Royal Valley and Hiawatha teams was clear. The Panthers were playing the role of Steve Austin, the titular “Six Million Dollar Man”, and were simply better, stronger and faster than the Red Hawks in a pair...
Holton's Mackenzie Moore (shown above) tracks a ball down and holds on for a catch to record an out early in Monday's doubleheader against Perry-Lecompton
  Maybe it got into a pattern after being forced into the underdog role more often than not over the past weekend, but the Holton softball team found itself having to rally on its home field quite a bit against Perry-Lecompton on Monday night. The Wildcats dug themselves into some holes in the...
Panther Caitlin Burns (shown above) puts a ball in play in the second game of a doubleheader in Holton on Monday, sparking a big inning for her team. Royal Valley had a lot of those on Monday in a pair of victories, 16-4 and 10-1, over Holton to move to 11-1 on the season.
  If Monday’s doubleheader between the Holton and Royal Valley softball teams was a little bit anticlimactic, it may have had a little bit to do with timing. With the Wildcats playing just their fourth series of the season in only their second week of competition, you could say the Panthers had a...
Wildcat Ali Morris (shown above, at left) puts a ball in play in the second game of a road doubleheader in Seneca last Thursday. Morris and the HHS softball team got off to a strong start in the season-opener, sweeping Nemaha Central.
  After a long wait and several practices, the Holton softball team might have been getting a little stir-crazy before their season-opener in Seneca on Thursday. Then, the weather played a cruel trick and threatened to delay the start of the Wildcats’ season once again. The rain held off, though,...
