'Rough start' tospring season signals high determination as Panthers show 'awesome' potential for future By Twila Hernandez On Feb. 27, both boys' and girls' teams from Superior High School started off the season with a scrim- mage against San Manuel. In the boys' game, they had already got RBI's in the first four innings. Martin Granille started the pitching that game and Manuel Ortega and Chris Grap followed along. Christine Grap was the starter pitcher for the girls' game and did an outstanding job before the ball was hit in a line drive toward her, injuring her pitching arm, causing Janae Perez to pitch the rest of the game. The score was not kept because the game was mainly for practice and to get ready for the season. However, both players displayed a lot of potential. The girls' and boys' teams faced the Kearny Bearcats on March 2. Although it was not a conference game. both teams went out strong. Being the last game the seniors would play against Kearny, they were a little sad. but it made them even more determined. The girls were winning 2-0 in the first inning, bul then Kearny caught up fast. The little errors caused the girls to get down on themselves and lose that game. Accorffing to Coach Preciado, they were garpes that the team learned from and they plan to work on their mistakes. Considering that the girls have a "young team,'? they Will have to work even harder to catch the younger girls up to their level. "It was a rough start to our season" said Dominique Castillo, "but we will get more used to each other and build stronger trusts." As the conference games start this week. the team is hoping for a brighter future. "I think if we fix all our little errors," said Ja- nae Perez, "we will be AWESOME!" The boys were also unsuccess- ful against Kearny. The game was close between the Bearcats and the Panthers. In the third inning, Granillo and Ortega got back to back hits, but Superior could not capitalize and stranded runners on third and second base. Alan Fox started offthe sixth inning with a deep shot to right- center field and got a double. Gabe Serrano. then. went up to bat, getting a hit to score in Fox and sacrificing himself at second base. The final score was 1-5. The boys also participated in the Florence tournament on March 3-6. Overall it was.a good tournament. The boys started off against Florence giving them a good game. Granillo and Ortega both threw good innings. Because of some unearned runs. it cost the Panthers the game, bringing the final score 1-4. The next day, the boys played Em- pire. Fox started that game off strong, but got into trouble towards the third, giwng a couple home runs. When it came time for the Panthers to bat. they started late but it ended up being too late. The final score was 8-16 On Friday, Ortega started off the pitching against Coolidge, and Granfllo reheved him later on, fimsh- ing the game It was a good game, but some of errors cost them a couple of runs. ultimately costing them the game. Then on Saturday, the boys played Hayden, going back and forth the whole game. The boys were hitting the ball a lot better and getting ran- nets on base. A close play at the plate ended the game for the Panthers, with the final score of 4-6, Hayden. Granillo was announced All Tourney. The boys gained a lot of experience playing bigger schools and showed plenty of heart. The next game will be on Friday, March 12 against Veri- tas Prep, so go on out there.
