    The Lady Panthers committed an estimated 35 turnovers in their 70-37 road loss to the Trimble County Lady Raiders. The game was originally scheduled for Friday night, but moved to Saturday afternoon due to severe weather.

    “We weren’t getting any loose balls. They were outhustling us to every ball, and we didn’t take care of the ball,” head coach Paul Stone said. “When those two things happen, it’s going to be a long night. We’ve got to take better care of the ball.”

    “They had a good game plan, and we’re fortunate to be able to get the win,” head coach Carroll Yager said.

  • Season Preview: Lady Panthers set goals high after first year under belts

    With a second year under their belts in head coach Paul Stone’s system and losing no seniors to graduation last season, the Lady Panthers will look to improve upon their 7-20 record last season.

    “That is one positive to not having any seniors is because you have the same players back,” Stone said.

    Having a new coach, a new system and no seniors on the team was difficult for the girls last season, and on him, Stone said. This year’s team will be better because the girls now have varsity experience and understand the system.

Still, the team managed to come together and finish the season with a winning record, 16-12 overall, 9-9 in the 8th Region and 3-6 in the 31st District.

    Yager said he was really proud of the team last year and had a great group of seniors.
