Panthers fall prey to Indians

Hancock High School’s boys’ varsity baseball team lost to the Indians 5-15 in Berkeley Springs last Thursday, April 20.

Still stinging from a 24-1 loss at home against Southern Fulton the day before, the Panthers now stand 3-9 on the season.

The lady Panthers fared a little better in their home game against Southern Fulton last Wednesday, with a loss of 6-3.

The Panthers host the Turkeyfoot Valley Area Rams on Tuesday, April 25. Hopes should be running high for both Panther teams, who each took home victories the last time they encountered the Rams in Confluence, Pa.

Next up, the lady Panthers host Bedford High School at Hancock High School on Thursday, April 27 at 4:45 p.m.

The next Panthers’ varsity baseball and softball home games after that will be on Thursday, May 4 at 4:45 p.m. when the boys take on Clear Spring High School, and the girls face off against Maryland School for the Deaf.
