  • Softball defeats South for first time in program history

    After injuring her finger attempting to bunt in her previous at-bat that forced her to give up her spot in right field because she could not grip the ball to throw, Michaela Culver stepped back into the box with the game on the line. Tied 5-5 with two outs, Kayla Williamson and Mackenzie Ogden were on base with a single apiece.

    Culver responded to the pressure situation, hitting an RBI single to centerfield to give the Lady Panthers softball team their first win in program history over the visiting South Oldham Lady Dragons Thursday, April 26.

    Gray also finished sixth in what head coach Joe Creager called “one of the most closely contested 1600 meter runs that I have ever seen.”
