Wednesday, March 9, 2011 Superior Panthers have hard start on die softball, Sun, Superior, Arizona Page 3 Tennis for us all: Panthers take the cOurt baseball diamond By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter A team is on the luckier side of', things if they start their season out well, with a win or even a tie, since they then have the advantage of at least a positive attitude that they have not needed to rebuild from an initial loss. Unfortunately, the Lady Panthers. were not so lucky as they went up against their rivals, the Ray Bearcats in their season and home opener Tuesday, March 1. The Bearcats brought a crushing game to the girls and while the girls played exceedingly well, they just couldn't keep up with a final score of 0-18. Undoubtedly, this lit an infuriating fire under the behinds of each player on the team. Check...new goal added to the list...beat the Bearcats next'time. These girls, however do not need to worry about keeping positive, with coaches like Carmen and Cheryl how could they ever get negative? These ladies literally exude positive light and wonderful energy which will turn this team into a power house. Have no fear the Lady Panthers will rise to the fight...if you wander past the field in the evenings, you can see them working hard to perfect their form. They will rock on and continue. The gents found they had an easier time against the Bearcats and it is very likely that teeth were bared dur- " ing this fierce game, with competition so palpable it could have been cut with a knife...yes, people, a knife... even in the open air. Coach Duarte kept the guys on point throughout the game, offering excellent advice and moving them in the direction they needed to cruise to head towards victory. Their swings were strong, follow-through excellent and you knew they were keeping their eyes on the ball. The game ended in a tie - so though they were not able to completely take down the Bearcats, they certainly did not let the Bearcats take them down. The following game played in Globe on March 3 unfortunately did not pay out so well, with an ending score of 0-18; this was followed by the game against Empire which was left with a score of 5-17. Yet, the boys know they can rock, if they put their mind and energy into it and Coach Duarte will keep them in check, keep them striving to be better and to never settle their abilities. This has been a hard start for both teams, but do not fear, this should be an incredible season with a few balls knocked right out of the park; this could pose a problem considering that both teams play games fight next to each other...but whatever! On Tuesday, March 8, the men's team played Gilbert Christian at home, hopefully to an exciting end, yet the score was um/vailable at press time. The teams next go on to play Veritas Prep in a hefty showdown in Superior on Friday, March 11, at 4 p.m. for both games. This game will be followed by games in Duncan on Saturday, March 12, at 1 p.m. and then games in Miami on Tuesday, March 15, at 4 p.m. for both games. Come out and support the dynamic athletes of Superior, they need your cheers. TIP Continued from page 2 the PB&J, after eating a warm and toasty, slightly sweet but surprisingly complex in flavor slice, is on her list of Old Time favorites as well. The treat is available as a small size pizza and not sold by the slice. TTL shared her pie with a friend that first time but thinks it would travel well for later munching when next she is in Kearny. The best family value on the current menu at Old Time Pizza is the "Dr. Pizza Special." This features a giant 16" pizza with one topping, nine breadsticks, 12'wings and one two liter soda. TTL was too full to try the wings but they are very popular at the restaurant and come in hot, BBQ and teriyaki. The eatery also offers a full line of hearty fare from burgers and fries (Buffalo Burger, anyone?) to salad bar. Appetizers and/or specialties include jalapefio poppers, mozzarella cheese sticks, gourmet beef battered onion rings, calzones, spaghetti with garlic bread " (add meatballs if desired), chicken filet or catfish dinners, pizza bread with cheese and more. There is, in other words, no way T'TL or anyone can visit Old Time Pizza and Dell at any time of day that it is open and come away unfulfilled in the eating department. Delivery is available in Kearny daily after 4 p.m. Call (520) 363-5523.

Added lhis Week: John's Trip to New York Cit9, SHS FCCLA's Cancer Walk John Soils in Concert By Taylor Sheaffer Ritter As things sometimes go, the season for the Superior Panther Tennis play- ers started out a bit slow. It's all good though, they are work- ing hard at their craft and skill and moving towards great things and, with the help of excellent coach Tommy Macias, they will surely achieve the best. During their first match against' Miami on Tuesday, March 1, the girls " were feeling the strain of a new sea- son and were left a little down when the match ended 1-8 to Miami. The boys, however, fared slightly better than their gal pals, ending the match 4-5 to Miami. This match was a good starting point to show the players what they needed to improve on and Coach Macias explained that Miami always has a good team, so this was a hard first team to play. They next met with Gilbert Chris- tian on Thursday, March 3, and this time the tables switched and the girls won the match with a score of 6-3, whereas the boys weren't able to con- quer the guys from Gilbert, with their score left at 0-9 to Gilbert Christian. young athletes and he will show them Defeat is a good thing at time, keeps the ways to winning. us humble, sets a precedent to keep At press time, the Superior Tennis learning.., all things should be taken Team were competing against the in stride as the opportunity to better kids from Duncan in Duncan; the one's abilities, score is yet unknown.
