Knoxville Softball is not necessarily looking at Pella right now. Oh, sure the Panthers know that Thursday’s class 4A Regional opener is not far away. However, Knoxville’s biggest concern is now Monday’s conference the regular season curtain dropper at Grinnell. With a win, the Panthers could finish with a winning record in the Little Hawkeye Conference and as high as third place. Coach Steph Christner says that is a big improvement over one season. She adds Friday’s wins over Pella Christian, the girls did not hit the ball as well as she would have wanted… however, they were productive in other ways live sacrifice flies and bunts.
