  • Struggles at the plate lead to 4-1 loss to Grant

    A combination of missed opportunities and pure bad luck stymied the baseball Panthers’ offense Wednesday, May 9. Carroll had bases loaded two different innings and produced just one run, losing 4-1. Grant also made a number of momentum-killing plays, including a diving catch by the shortstop to end the game.
