While the Knoxville Baseball Panthers are going for a conference title, the Knoxville softball squad will try to get some needed momentum to finish out the regular season this week. Knoxville travels to Class 4A top ranked Dallas Center-Grimes. The Fillies have long since been established as one of the teams to beat in 4A this season. However, that is not stopping the Panthers from trying to upset their world just a bit. Coach Steph Christner tells KNIA/KRLS facing a pitcher like D-C-G’s Paige Lowry her girls will have to see the ball. Lowery has been clocked as high as 70 miles per hour, so the pitches will be coming in quicker than normal.
