SMHS celebrated Senior Night with a win. Panther seniors Sawyer Casey and Nathan Greene were honored before the game receiving custom bats commemorating their four years of play at Stone Memorial High School. Once again, the home team was able to come from behind in extra innings to post a District win against the Loudon Redskins for an 8-7 final in 10 innings. Nathan Greene started on the mound pitching three shut-out innings, before the Redskins would score two runs in the fourth on one hit and three errors. Rayne Bennett, Luke Matthews, A.J. Tarallo, and John Martin all came in for relief, with Martin getting the win.
