Carolina Forest’s top hitters were Katie Endres (4-for-4, two RBIs) and Emma Liles (3-for-4, three RBIs).

The Lady Panthers travel to North Myrtle Beach on Thursday.

* Myrtle Beach 16, Marlboro County 7: The Lady Seahawks continued their hot hitting by blowing out the Lady Bulldogs.

Leading the way for the Lady Seahawks at the plate was Leah Belack (3-for-5, two doubles, triple). McKenzie Coble, Madison Needle and Carly Grace Bodge each had three hits and scored two runs apiece. Bodge also picked up the win on the mound.

The Lady Seahawks return to action Wednesday against North Myrtle Beach for a key region showdown.
