Good day (week) for Panthers

Friday was a particularly good day of a good week for Mead baseball and softball teams. The Panthers boys kept up the torrid offense (although Shadle Park to its credit matched 'em) in a 12-9 victory at Al K. Jackson Field. Of Mead's 10 hits, two were doubles, two triples and a home run. Seth Peterson hit is third homer, a 3-run bomb, and doubled. Grant Fink doubled, Jake Schrader and Tyler Benson tripled. But the team nearly let a 12-1 lead get away because: Taylor Raynor had three hits including a double. Luke Jordan had two hits and a double. Tyler Pfeffer had three hits and doubled twice among the Highlanders 13 base knocks.

As for the girls, following back-to-back wins over Central Valley and University, the Panthers are now tied with the Titans for first place with 4-1 records. CV and Shadle Park are half a game behind heading into spring break. Mead beat U-Hi Friday 5-4 on Emma Barrington's bases loaded single. Barrington, whose dad John is the coach, and Breanna Lookabill each had two hits. It looks like it's going to be quite a race for two 4A regional berths.
