Ava Jones reaches for the layup and draws the foul against Meadville on Sept. 19.

After losing three games in a row, the junior high Lady Panthers basketball players seem to be on a run of redemption as they secured their fourth straight victory on Sept. 22 against the Cochranton Cardinals. The Panthers showed their dominance in a crushing 35-25 victory.

The seventh grade team has had similar success as Macy Troples has led the team to a 3-4 record thus far. “Our goal is to win every game, have good sportsmanship and play together,” Troples said. The girls’ recent success can be accredited to their hard work and their dedication.

Legendary ladies Coach Steve Scott said, “We have a lot of young players this year that have the ability to step up.” Tonight, the team travels to Conneaut Lake for a match-up with the Eagles.
