Jemison’s softball team picked up its first win of the season Monday, 5-2 home at home over Thorsby.

Some younger Panthers contributed to the victory, as eighth grader Lauren Crosby went 3-for-4 at the plate, and ninth grader Morgan Lucas went 2-for-3.

Shelby Griffin, Emily Patterson and Shelby Lopez drove in one run each, and Tiffany Guin knocked home two runs with a double in the second inning.

The Panthers had nine hits in all.

THS loaded the bases in the top of the seventh inning but could not push a run across.

Guin struck out seven Thorsby batters in seven innings pitched to earn the win.

Taylor McManus suffered the loss for Thorsby even though she struck out eight Panthers in six innings of work.
