Catie Hoekstra catches an infield fly and stops Camp Verde's play.

By Sabrina FlickThe Tri City Prep Lady Panthers softball team played against Camp Verde High School on Monday, April

16th and again on Wednesday April 18th. Monday’s game was very well played, but unfortunately the Panthers were not able to win the game. Wednesday’s game was a different story. It was a great game and probably the best of the season with a final score of 16 to 0 in the Panthers favor.

“The team was in the zone! We made one good play after another and it showed how all of our hard work and practice paid off,” said Blair Willette, a team captain.

The Lady Panthers stepped out on the Camp Verde field with a great mind set and they were ready to show Camp Verde that it wasn’t going to be an easy game. Some of the highlights of the game included double plays by both Catie Hoekstra and Sabrina Flick. Everyone played really well, and Blair Willette and Emily Beaman had several great plays.

Overall the game was a team effort. The infield was where they needed to be at all times, and outfield never let any balls get past them and quickly stopped the opposing team’s plays. Paige Skousen and

Karen Ann Mancha did a fantastic jobbing catching and pitching respectively.

“Everyone did amazing! It was the best game we played all season and we really came together and played as a team. Everyone was on their game and it really showed in the score,” said Beaman, another team captain.

“It was a well executed game. They did an excellent job and played hard during the entire game,” said

Cody Tegman, team manager.

They were both great games

and hopefully not the last win for the Lady Panthers.
