The Miami Trace Lady Panthers hosted the Panthers from Ross Southeastern High School for a non-conference game Thursday afternoon.
It was partly cloudy, but mild with a temperature in the mid-60s — in other words, a beautiful early spring day in Fayette County.
Miami Trace had its second consecutive shutout victory, this one 12-0 in five innings.
Olivia Wolffe started and was the winning pitcher for Miami Trace.
She pitched five innings with two hits, no runs, no walks and 12 strikeouts.
Offensively, Miami Trace collected 11 hits.
“Olivia threw well again tonight,” Miami Trace head coach Joe Henry said. “I’m really proud of her.
“Offensively, we started hitting the ball a lot better today,” Henry said. “Campy hit that nice home run to left-center. Thomas hit a double off the fence. Again, it’s early. We’ll start hitting the ball. We’ll get the ball flying. We’ll get better as the games go along.”
The Lady Panthers went a long way toward breaking the game open with eight runs in the bottom of the first inning.
They scored one in the second and set the stage for the run-rule with three in the third.
