Both Knoxville Baseball and Softball Squads have an extra day off this week as both are idle today. The Baseball Squad is coming off an opening week where they 3-0 with wins over Des Moines Christian, Centerville, and Winterset. Coach Steve Mott says the team got better every game last week, however Wednesday will be a good measuring stick to see how far they have come along. The Panthers take on Pella Christian on Wednesday. Meanwhile the softball Panthers are currently 1-3 on the season and completed their first weekend invitational in Centerville on Saturday. Coach Steph Christener says she is trying to get the girls to play to win games and not to play not to lose when they are in a close contest in the late innings. Knoxville also hosts Pella Christian on Wednesday.
