    A 12-4 third-quarter comeback was not enough to pull out a win for the Lady Panthers Dec. 21. The girls lost 47-37 to the visiting Shelby County Lady Rockets.

    The Lady Panthers were down 30-19 at the half, but outscored the Lady Rockets in the third to cut the lead to three, 34-31. Unfortunately for the home team, they could not keep up that momentum down the stretch.

    Shelby junior Katie Hudgens and sophomore Justus Martin led all scorers with 12 points each.
