Dolan hurls no-hit shutout
Eric Dolan pitched a no hit, no run game Thursday for Tracy-Milroy as they won 2-0 over Kerkhoven-Murdoch-Sunburg. The win improved their record to 2-0 for the season.
"The only thing that prevented Eric from having a perfect (21 batters faced-21 batters out) game was the error in the seventh inning," said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. "It was clear that a good throw would have had him out."
Errors force Panthers to settle for split
The Panther Baseball Team split a double header with Yellow Medicine East on Monday at Milroy. They won the first game 7-3 but lost the second 4-3 when the Sting came back and scored four runs in the last inning to take the nightcap.
"We played pretty well in the first game but didn't give Eric (Dolan) much support in the second," said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. "The inexperience in our infield showed up in the second game when we committed four misplays. In our defense it was cold and we haven't been able to get much practice time in. We can handle the physical mistakes but there is no excuse for the mental errors."
The Panther girls finished in third place and the boys were seventh at the Fulda Invitational held in Slayton Tuesday.
Weather puts freezes on Pipestone track meet Saturday
The Panther girls took second place and the boys were seventh at the Montevideo Invitational Thursday.
"We were using the Monte meet as a warm-up for the Pipestone meet scheduled for Saturday and didn't use all of our personnel in all of the events that we could have," said Panther Coach Steve Jones. "And then the Pipestone meet was cancelled because of the weather."
After two conference meets the Panther boys are in third place in the conference standings and the girls have not yet played due to weather cancellations. The boys played at Atwater last Thursday and at Olivia Monday. They finished third at Atwater and fifth at Olivia.
