Panthers make state history with eighth straight state softball title

-A A +A

The Piedra Vista Panther softball team went through the Class 4A state tournament unscathed to win its record-setting eighth state title in a row.
Piedra Vista (26-5) finished off its impressive run in 2013 with a 5-2 victory over another District 1 team, Aztec, to earn the title.
Three of the final four teams standing in the 4A playoffs this season were from District 1, including Farmington, which lost to Aztec in an elimination round contest Friday.
The Panthers, who were the No. 1 seed in the postseason, allowed just eight runs in five games to take the title.
Los Alamos was the No. 12 seed for the state tournament this season but lost a heartbreaking 8-7 game to Los Lunas in the opening round, which was a direct-elimination round. All teams that advanced past the first round moved onto double-elimination play.
Piedra Vista actually defeated Aztec’s Tigers twice in the tournament. Aztec, the No. 4 seed, fell to the Panthers in the third round 10-3 before coming back through the loser’s bracket to get to the championship round.
The Panthers lost just one game this season to a team from New Mexico, that coming against Las Cruces, a 1-0 decision, in mid-March.
