top standings
    The North Hopkins Panthers sit alone at the top of the District 17A baseball standings with a perfect 6-0 record. The Panthers are 6-2 on the year with losses to Celeste and Wolfe City.
    In district play the Panthers have roared past opponents by the aggregate score of 92-3. Five of the district games have been shutouts, with the exception a 20-3 win over Yantis.
    In the non-district losses, the Panthers were defeated by Celeste 17-7 and Wolfe City 13-3.
    "We just did not play well at Celeste. We did not come ready to play," coach Tim Henderson  Panthers head coach said. "But Wolfe City beat us because they hit everything we through at them. They hit the ball extremely well and whipped us."
In the 20-3 win over Yantis, Blake Adams had a 3-4 day including a home run. Jessie Williams added a roundtripper. Kevin Meza picked up the win on the mound. Adams, Williams and Meza each had four RBI's in the game.
    The Panthers traveled to Honey Grove and pounded out 12 hits with Silas Whaley pitching for the win. Whaley, Meza, Adams (two doubles) and Austin Oldham each had a pier of hits.
Alfredo Orozco tossed five innings of shutout baseball and Kevin Meza closed out the game over Sulphur Bluff 7-0.
    The Panthers took to the road during spring break to face Saltillo, this time getting 11 hits and Whaley gaining the win on the mound. Meza was also perfect at the plate with a 3-for-3 effort. Adams continued his torrid pace on offense going 2-3  with another pair of doubles. Orozco also went 2-for-3 to support his own pitching effort.
    In a battle of unbeatens at Birthright, the Panthers downed Cumby 9-0. behind strong pitching and hitting. Orozco struck out seven Trojan batters in five innings and Meza fanned three to close out the win. Meza also blasted a homer with Williams going 3-for-4 with two singles and a double. Rheston Sills added to the offense going 2-for-3 and Orozco had two singles.
    "We played very good against Cumby. We got good pitching, good hitting and played solid defense," Henderson noted, "I was impressed with Cumby's outfielders, they made some good plays out there."
    The Panthers are hosting Roxton on March 25.
