Pitching duel goes to Navarro Panthers

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Emma Stanfield and Courtney Clark drove in runs in the opening frame, and Regen Dunn posted 12 strikeouts, but the Lady Gobblers were defeated, 3-2, in their district-opener against Navarro.

After a scorching start to the season, which saw Cuero post an 8-0 record including a Navarro Tournament title, the Lady Gobblers dropped their first game of the season.

“With the start we’ve had, you forget how to struggle,” coach Cody Miller said.

The Navarro Panthers scored all of their runs in the third inning, as both pitchers turned in sensational performances in the circle. The Panther pitcher notched 15 strikeouts including eight in the first three innings. Dunn was equally as impressive.
