The Raymore-Peculiar Lady Panther softball team came up one victory shy of winning the Class 4 state championship Saturday.
The Lady Panthers, however, finished one spot higher than they did a year ago, when they finished third in Class 4.
Ray-Pec earned their way into the state championship game Friday afternoon with a 10-0 shutout victory over Northwest High School of Cedar Hill, in the St. Louis area.
The shutout pattern, however, continued on into the Class 4 championship game, but in the championship game it was the Lady Panthers being shut out, as they lost 10-0 to Blue Springs South.
The Lady Panthers finished the 2019 season with a 25-6 record and their highest state tournament finish in school history.
