Stigler softball seeks completion at home, more area district tourneys
Stigler's softball team hopes for its second district title of the year. The Panthers won districts at home in fast pitch. Now, as its seven-member senior group plays districts at home for the third time in its high-school career, Stigler hosts two teams with records around .500 as it hopes to complete its run of success this year. Also, Stigler is trying to break through after having been eliminated in districts despite having winning records in the past three slow-pitch seasons.
