BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Tough day for the Panthers, we didn't swing the bats particularly well. We battled on the mound and gave ourselves a chance to win both games, but we just couldn't quite get over the hump. The ODAC is a tough conference and if you don't play well each weekend, your going to get beat." --Head Coach Ryan Brittle
Coach Ryan Brittle's team will be back in action Wednesday, March 20, at 3:00 p.m. The ODAC game is schedule for a 3:00 p.m. start in Emory, Virginia.
