Kayla Feeney and Shawna Carbone each whacked a double and a single for Heights, while Taryn Terry lined a pair of singles. Carbone and Terry plated two runners apiece with their safeties.

The next night against Fort Wayne Dwenger, the Lady Panthers came up on the short end of a 14-3 score.

Carbone blasted a home run and a double to drive in two of the three Heights tallies. Autumn Murphy also had two hits.
