Pahranagat Valley junior catcher Jamie Hansen snags a low pitch. Hansen had two unassisted put outs at home plate in the game this week with Sunrise Mountain.

Pahranagat Valley trailed 6-3 going into their last at bat in the top of the seventh inning of their non-league game at Virgin Valley in Mesquite April 25.

Then freshman Madison Harris doubled in two runs as part of a five-run rally as the Panthers beat the Bulldogs 8-6.
Brook Higbee and Traci Strong each had two hits, and winning pitcher Kennedy Huntsman added a triple for Pahranagat Valley.
Janella Fiso had a two-run home run for Virgin Valley.

On Tuesday this week in Alamo, Sidney Harris was 3-for-3 to help the Panthers top the Lake Mead Eagles 25-15 in five innings in the non-league game.

Alyson Egbert was 2-for-3, and Traci Strong had a double and three RBIs for the Panthers (16-3). The 25 runs are the most for Pahranagat in any single game this season.

It started off easy for the Lady Panthers who put up eight runs in the first inning and had to take to bunting the ball just in order to give Lake Mead (2-13) a chance to make a play.

Coach Mike Sparrow said he used quite a few of his younger players “to give them some work.” In the third inning, PVHS racked up nine more runs.

But after Sparrow took out starter Huntsman and put in relief pitchers, Lake Mead began to score, 15 runs in the last three innings
Sparrow said the relief pitchers were not hitting the strike zone, issuing 12 walks and hit six batters. “We even had to score five more runs in the bottom of the fifth inning ourselves just to get to the 10 run margin,” he said.

Alamo, riding an 11-game win streak, has a league double-header at Tonopah (1-5, 1-1) this Friday. The Panthers beat the Muckers 10-9 and 9-8 in non-league action in the middle of March.

PVHS closes out the regular season meeting Lincoln County in Alamo May 6.

The four-team District IV region tournament will be in Alamo May 15-17, and the state tournament in Reno, May 22-24.
