Despite loading the bases, the Stewartville softball team failed to score in the bottom of the eighth inning and lost 3-1 hosting Pine Island at the RCTC Dome on April 12. The Panthers outhit the Tigers 10-6 and the Stewie defense committed two costly errors that plated PI's winning runs in the top of the eighth inning. "I'm pleased with how we played, considering we haven't practiced outside at all yet," said Tiger coach Curt Hughes. "Lauren (Horstmann) mixed things up and pitched well tonight. We could probably do a better job hitting, but we had our chances to score runs and win the game."
