ORANGEBURG, SC (February 10, 2023) – The Claflin Lady Panthers (2-0) looked closer to their championship form from last season when the team took a dominating 19-0 win over the Allen (S.C.) Yellowjackets (0-2), Sunday afternoon. The Lady Panthers held the Yellowjackets scoreless behind some dynamic defense.
It was the team’s great pitching and defense on the field that powered the win. The Lady Panthers held the Yellowjackets to just three hits in the game, including no extra base hits. Claflin sophomore pitcher Breyanna Collins (1-0) led the way for the Lady Panthers, going all five innings with seven strikeouts and no walks allowed.
Offensively, the Lady Panthers added a big day as well with senior short stop Jaelyn Jackson going three-for-three at the plate with three runs scored and four runs batted in (RBI).
With the win, the Lady Panthers improve to 2-0 to start the season. The team will return to action, Friday, when they take part in the Briana Surrento Kickoff Classic hosted by Lander College.
