Panther Baseball Splits with Low Country Wildcats

Panthers – 7                       Low Country Wildcats – 2

The Panthers travelled to Summerville on Saturday to face the Charleston Low Country Wildcats in a double header.  It was a beautiful day for baseball as the Panthers won game #1 by a 7-2 score.    The Panthers scored three runs in the top of the first to get the game off to a great start.  Micah West drew a walk with two outs in the inning.  David Hucks then doubled to deep left center field to score Micah all the way from first.  Connor Shealy then doubled to score David and Connor scored when Samuel Leslie singled to center field.  The Wildcats answered with two runs in the bottom of the frame when they took advantage of a walk and two Panther errors.

The Panthers got those runs back in the top of the second.  Drew McKay singled to begin the inning.  He advanced to third on a single by Avery Blevins, who promptly stole second base.  David singled with one out to score both.

Good pitching by Connor Shealy kept the Wildcats at bay and the Panthers added insurance runs in the top of the fifth.  Alex McKay singled and stole second base and advanced to third on a Low Country error.  Drew walked and courtesy runner, Jonathan Sarazen stole second base.  Avery knocked his third hit of the game to score both runs.  David Hucks closed out the game on the mound for PAC.

As stated earlier, Avery had three hits and two RBI’s.  David Hucks had a double and a single and three RBI’s.  Drew McKay had two singles.  Others with hits include Connor (double), Samuel and Alex.

Connor Shealy (1-0) picked up his first pitching victory on the year.  He pitched four innings allowing two unearned runs.  He only gave up two hits and struck out six Wildcat hitters.  David pitched the final inning and did not allow a run.  He allowed one hit and walked two.

Game Notes:  Samuel Leslie and Drew McKay got their first hits at the varsity level.  The Panthers improve to 4-0 on the season.  The Panthers had ten hits and fifteen productive at bats.  The Panthers had four assists and committed three errors.

Panthers – 6                       Low Country Wildcats – 7

In an exciting conclusion to the Saturday double header, the Wildcats prevailed over the Panthers for the first time at the varsity level by a 7-6 score.  The Panthers outhit the Wildcats by a 10-5 margin but could not overcome six errors in the field which led to seven unearned runs. The Panthers had been playing good defense before this game, so hopefully we got all of those errors out of our system in that one game.

The Panthers drew first blood in the top of the first.  Avery Blevins singled and stole second base.  He advanced to third on a passed ball.  He scored on a single by McKinley Proctor.  McKinley stole second base and attempted to score on a single by Micah West but was thrown out at the plate on a very close play.  Micah West advanced to second when David Hucks drew a walk.  Micah then stole third and scored when Connor Shealy hit into a fielder’s choice.  Just like in the first game, the Wildcats scored two runs in the bottom of the first to get right back into the game.  The Wildcats scored their runs on the strength of three hits but a Panther error prolonged the inning allowing the runs to score.  Avery Blevins fielded a ground ball up the middle, stepping on second on throwing on to first to complete a double play preventing the inning the Wildcats from scoring even more runs.

The Panthers scored four runs in the top of the second.  Micaiah Hinkle worked a walk to open the frame.  Drew McKay walked with one out to put runners at first and second.  Avery doubled to left field to score Micaiah and leaving runners on second and third.  McKinley Proctor singled to score both Drew and Avery and scored when Micah West singled giving the Panthers three straight hits.

The Wildcats were silent in the second inning but began their climb back into the game by plating two runs in the bottom of the third.  The Panthers had three errors in the inning.  The Wildcats then took the lead in the bottom of the fourth when they plated another three runs on the strength of two more Panther errors and one hit. UGHHHH.

The Panthers tried to tie the game in the top of the fifth , getting a runner as far as third, but they could punch the run across so the game ended in the first regular season loss.

Samuel Leslie was the starting pitcher for PAC.  He pitched three innings allowing four unearned runs on four hits.  He walked one batter.  David Hucks took the loss to even his record at 1-1.  He allowed one hit and three unearned runs.

Game Notes:  The Panthers out hit the Wildcats 10-5 but could not overcome six errors.  Avery singled and doubled and scored two runs.  McKinley Proctor also had two hits, scored one run and had two RBI’s.  Micah West had two singles and scored on run.  David Hucks, Connor Shealy and Micaiah Hinkle all contributed one single and Drew McKay knocked a double.  The Panthers had fourteen productive at bats which is above their per game goal of eleven and generally leads to a victory, but again, they were undone by their errors.  Caleb Green and Dan Beam missed the game due to the SAT.

Panther Baseball Improves to 3-0 Besting Columbia High School

Panthers – 18                    Columbia High School – 0

The Panthers improved to 3-0 on the young season with a convincing victory at Columbia High School on Tuesday night.  The Panthers scored eight runs in the top of the first inning and never looked back.  They added seven more runs in the third inning and three more in the fourth inning to close out the scoring. While the Panthers were scoring at will, Panther pitching kept the Capitals off of the scoreboard.  Dan Beam pitched two innings to secure the win, not allowing a hit.  Micaiah Hinkle followed Dan to the mound, pitching two innings, allowing one hit.

The Panthers had ten hits in the victory and were led by David Hucks who had three.  Others with hits include Avery Blevins, McKinley Proctor, Micah West, Caleb Green (double), Dan Beam, Connor Shealy and Zach Thurber (this was Zach’s first hit at the varsity level).

Game Notes: The Panthers improve to 3-0.  Dan Beam’s pitching record is now 1-0.  The Panthers had thirteen RBI’s led by David Hucks with four.  The Panthers had 26 productive at bats.

Panther Baseball Grounds Wardlaw Academy Patriots

Panthers – 7                       Wardlaw Academy – 4

The Panthers prevailed in their second game of the Jefferson Davis preseason baseball tournament in Blackville, South Carolina by besting Wardlaw Academy 7-4.  The Panthers were the home team so the Patriots from Wardlaw Academy grabbed their lumber first.  Two straight Panther error to open the game put runners at first and second.  A double scored both runs putting the Panthers in an early two run hole.  The Panthers were unfazed by this and responded with three runs in the bottom of the first.  Avery Blevins singled to start the inning but was forced out at second when McKinley Proctor hit into a fielder’s choice.  McKinley scored on a long double to center field by Caleb Green.  Caleb scored on a single by Jonathan Sarazen, who later scored on an error by the Patriot center fielder.

The Patriots tied the game in the top of the second on the strength of a walk and a double.  The Panthers retook the lead in the bottom of the third by plating two runs.  Caleb hit his second double of the game with one out.  He scored on a single by David Hucks.  David later scored on a double by Conner Shealy.   After three innings, the Panthers led 5-3.

The Panthers added two insurance runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.  Micah West led off with a double and Caleb was hit by a pitch putting runners at first and second.  After two outs, Samuel Leslie was hit by a pitch to load the bases.  Micah scored with Conner worked the pitcher for a walk and Caleb scored on a wild pitch.  After five, the Panthers enjoyed a 7-3 advantage.  The Patriots refused to go quietly and loaded the bases with no outs against the Panther starter, David Hucks, who was beginning to tire.  Samuel Leslie came in to try and put out the fire before it raged out of control burning up the Panthers lead.  He fell behind the first batter, but came back to induce a fly ball to center field which allowed the runner at third to score but the other runners were unable to advance.  The second batter flew out to left field and there were now two outs in the inning.  The third batter Samuel faced hit a looping liner back up the middle that shortstop Avery Blevins slid over to swallow up and touch second base before the advancing runner could get there.  It was a fine pitching performance by Samuel.  This was the last run either team would score so the Panthers prevailed 7-4.

The Panthers had nine hits in the game and were led by Caleb who smashed two doubles.  Micah, Conner and Micaiah Hinkle also doubled for the Panthers.  Avery Blevins contributed two singles and others with hits were Jonathan and David.

David Hucks was the starting pitcher for PAC.  He pitched five innings, allowing four runs on three hits.  Samuel Leslie relieved David, pitching out of a no out, bases loaded situation in the sixth before closing out the game.  David (1-0) earned a win for his efforts and Samuel earned a save.

The Panthers are now 2-0 on the season and play Columbia High School on Monday evening (weather permitting).

PAC Baseball Defeats Jefferson Davis Academy in Preseason Tournament

Panthers –  6                       Jefferson Davis – 0

The PAC Panthers arrived in Blackville Thursday night to cross swords with the Raiders from Jefferson Davis for the first time.  Micah West got the start and pitched a great game, only allowing one infield hit in the seventh inning.  He had nine strikeouts and walked three.  He was relieved by David Hucks in the seventh who got a strikeout to end the game.

The Panthers were scoreless through three innings before they finally broke through in the top of the 4th inning.  Caleb Green singled, stole second base and scored on a single by David Hucks.  They took control of the game when they added four runs in the 5th inning.  Conner Shealy reached on an error with one out and his courtesy runner, Zach Thurber, reached second base on a single by Micaiah Hinkle.  Zach and Micaiah both scored on passed balls.  Avery drew a walk and McKinley Proctor reached on an error and Micah West singled to plate both of them.  The Panthers added their final run in the top of the 7th inning.  McKinley singled and stole second base.  He later scored on a single by David.

The Panthers had six hits in the game.  David Hucks had two singles and two RBI’s.  Others with hits were McKinley, Micah, Caleb and Micaiah.  The Panthers had five assists for the game and fourteen productive at bats.  The Panthers are 1-0 on the season.  Micah West’s pitching record is now 1-0.

PAC Soccer Tryouts Postponed

PAC Soccer Tryouts Postponed

Looking at the weather forecast for the next several days, we have decided to postpone tonight’s tryout, Thursday Dec 7th, until Monday Dec 11th.

-On Monday the coaches would like to speak with the parents of the 10th-12th grade participants at 7:45 at the field.

Due to the change in dates, team Rosters will not be posted until Tuesday Dec 12th in order to give coaches time to make final decisions regarding players. At that time, registration will be open. When signing up there will be a drop down with the following to choose from: Varsity Boys, JV Boys, Varsity Girls, JV Girls, Part-time/Club Player, Reserve/Alternate.

Part-time/Club Player-this is only for those players who are playing on a club team this spring and will only be able to make PAC practice once a week and participate in games when it doesn’t interfere with club practice. Your fees will be reduced due to your part-time commitment but you will have to buy a uniform.

Reserve/Alternate Players-these individuals were not selected to be on a team, but have been invited to participate in all PAC practices to continue to develop their skills so they will be ready to play on a team in the future. You will pay $95 for continued training and insurance coverage, as well as receive a PAC practice shirt but you will not need to purchase a uniform.

I have included the price of the uniform into the registration fees: Varsity Boys, JV Boys, Varsity Girls: $340+$145=$485
JV Girls: $310+$145=$455
Part-time: $185+$145=$330

The Soccer team will be doing a Domino’s Pizza fundraiser from January 9-23. You will have potential to make a dent in your fees depending on how many cards you sell. I will send more information out regarding that in January.

Please go to this Registration link not an old one you may have saved:
https://pacpanthers.demosphere-secure.com/_registration

Let me know if you have any questions or if you cannot make it next Monday.
