On Friday, March 19, during spring break, the Blanco Panther softball team narrowly defeated the Natalia Lady Mustangs 1 to 0. In a strong pitching and defensive display by both teams, hits were difficult to make.

In the 4th inning with the score still tied at zero, Leslie McClinton hit a hard fly ball down the left field line for a triple. Alex Gustafson followed with a line drive for a single and a RBI, bringing McClinton home for the score. The Panthers continued to play a tight defense for the next three innings and were able to hold on to the lead for the win.

Callie Culton and Chandler Ashley pitched for Blanco; Culton went five innings with five strike outs and the win.

District play began this week at home against Harper on Tuesday, March 23, and will continue with Comfort on March 26.
