On Saturday, April 6th, Green Hope hosted the annual Super Saturday event against Panther Creek. This is a day full of competition between the Catamounts and Falcons in the majority of Spring sports. Year after year, this big day usually decides the Fight for 55 yearly results as 5 points are on the line for grabs. Let us recap how our teams performed, all in big rivalry matches.

A slow start led to a 1-3 deficit that eventually led to a huge Falcon comeback win. The team took the lead in the 5th inning and never looked back. Kohl Abrams was able to secure the win with great pitching on the mound. The Falcons travel to Riverside tomorrow.
