It was a special night for the Orange softball team. The Lady Panthers defeated Cedar Ridge 20-0 in five innings at Orange softball field. Orange jumped right on the Red Wolves with six runs in the opening inning, punctuated by a three-run homer from junior second baseman Mary Moss Wirt. Recently, Wirt committed to play softball at Elon University, where her father, Todd, played baseball. In the circle, freshman Caden Robinson earned her first varsity win by throwing two shutout innings. On top of that, Robinson went 3-for-3 at the plate with two doubles, 3 RBIs and three runs scored. Orange is atop the Big 8 Conference after knocking off the two-time defending Big 8 Champions. Now, Orange will travel to face Vance County on Wednesday before a big home game against powerful Northwood on Thursday in Hillsborough.
