The Lady Panthers had trouble stringing hits together to score runs. 

COACHES QUOTE: “It is early and we have a lot to work on. They just stepped off the basketball court and with the rain over the weekend, we did not have a chance to get on the field to practice. These games give us an idea of what we need to focus on,” — Latta head coach Jim Foster. 

Team Record: Latta 0-2.
