    The Panthers won the SE Kentucky Invitational last weekend in Bell County, Ky.

    In game one Friday, Ethan Stewart struck out nine batters as Carroll defeated host Bell County, 13-5.

    Head coach Jay Jones said the game was closer than the score made it appear. “Bell hit the ball hard all night, just right at us,” he said. “We made plays, and Ethan dominated the bottom half of their lineup.”

    With a three-run lead, Zach Wise hit a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth to blow the game wide open.
