Last Thursday, the Lady Panthers basketball team secured the first place seed for the third year straight. In the past 3 years the Lady Panthers are 47-5. “This team is playing the best team basketball I have ever seen,” says Coach Goodman. They are doing this at exactly the right time as they head into the county tournament. Since the start of the tournament, no school has won the Championship title back to back years, but the Lady Panthers are aiming to do so. The 2014 Lady Panthers were able to knock off the undefeated Weddington Wildcats in the Championship game last year. This team knows how it feels to win, but they also know how hard it is to get to the championship and are not taking anything for granted. The Lady Panthers hold a 12-1 record, which is the best in the county and hope that they can win three more to become Champions once again. The tournament will take place at Monroe Middle School from the 27th – 30th.
