PREP ROUNDUP: Panthers pounce on Grizz
South Medford scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to overhaul Ashland, 5-2, in Southern Oregon Conference softball Tuesday at South Medford High.
Ashland led 2-1 before the Panthers’ uprising, which was sparked by Bri Turrey’s leadoff triple.
The victory was the first in league for South Medford, which improved to 1-3 in the SOC and 2-4 overall. Ashland is 0-3 and 0-6.
Kailey Wheelock followed Turrey’s big hit with a single to tie it, 2-2. Nevaeh Atchley provided the Panthers with a third consecutive hit, a single, and after a groundout, Rubi Zamores’ bunt scored Wheelock.
Atchley made it 4-2 on a passed ball.
South Medford got an insurance run in the fifth when June Woster walked, advanced on a Maddie Fullenwider double and scored on Turrey’s single.
Turrey was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run.
Panther pitchers Wheelock and Kaycee Hudson checked Ashland on three hits — a double by Kirsten Morgan and singles by Tatum Pantle and Tessa Hobein.
