The Jennings County High School softball team hosted the Indian Creek Braves on Monday, and sent them home with a 15-0 shutout loss at the hands of the Lady Panthers. The game was such a blowout that the game was called in the fifth inning.
Senior Shelby Wilson started in the circle, pitching the first four innings and giving up four hits, and taking four strikeouts. Senior Lidia Hall was brought in as the closer, and gave up two hits in the final half inning.
Batting was led by seniors Tori Lee, Averi Zamora, and Alaina Young, who all batted 1000. Lee and Zamora both had doubles, and Lee even added a triple to her near cycle on the night. Wilson had four RBIs, Lee had three, Zamora and Skyler Wilson each had two, and Makenzie Matern, Brooke Mowery, and Young each had one. Senior Brooke Mowery, who had a hit and two runs to go along with her RBI, had her first start on the season, as she has been recovering from injury since the beginning of the season.
Even more special than the huge 15-0 win was the final regular season home game for a group of seven seniors that have truly given their all to this program. Each senior has payed for the program for all four years. The senior group includes Lidia Hall, daughter of Billy and Tracy Hall, Tori Lee, daughter of Craig and Julie Lee, Brooke Mowery, daughter of Mike and Christy Mowery, Skylar Weber, daughter of Brad Weber and Tessa Salsman, Shelby Wilson, daughter of Mike and Suzanne Wilson, Alaina Young, daughter of Adam and Kristy Young, and Averi Zamora, daughter of Tiger and Brandy Zamora.
The Lady Panthers will participate in the Golden Bear Invitational at Shelbyville this Saturday, and then wrap up regular season play next week. Their first game of the weekend begins at 11 a.m.
