By Shane Bartholomew, 06/05/17, 9:45AM EDT


Nikki Mandizha hits 2 more OTF HR and Vanessa Adorno hits her 1st!!

The 14U Lady Panthers played consistent softball this weekend, the bats were working, fielding was excellent and pitching was superb.  In the end the 2nd place finish came down to some key base running mistakes.   The Lady Panther fell to NLS out of Tampa 8-5 in the 14U championship game. 

The Lady Panthers had 2 big HR strikes from Nikki Mandizha, who recorded her 4th & 5th HR in the short 5 month season so far.  Vanessa Adorno had her first career HR while  Sophia Waigand and Kiki White recorded a pair of RBI doubles each as well.   On the mound Leah Coffing threw a complete game shutout and recorded 9 strikeouts and Jetty Luedeke was in command all weekend long and is showing excellent control of her pitches.   

These girls are headed in the right direction, excellent progress ladies, keep working hard!
