Snider has been a dominant factor in softball over the last few years, and first-year coach Chris Crapser hopes to have the Panthers there again in the future.
"We have a very young team, and next year we will be a force again like Snider generally is," said Crapser, who replaced Phil Nicolet.
After losing their top pitcher in Taylor Randall three days ago to academics, the Panthers couldn't outslug Leo on Thursday and lost 18-7 for their second straight loss.
Snider had nine hits and scored five runs in the fourth but couldn't keep up with the Lions.
"We are a hitting team," Crapser said. "This is my first year, and when I took it over in the fall my philosophy was we were going to be a hitting team. We focused on that, and if we can outscore the other team we have a good chance of winning."
