Returning from an unfavorable 2016-17 season, the Lady Panthers are back and have set their sights on a playoff championship.
After losing no team members to graduation, the Saegertown girls basketball team looks stronger than ever.
Last year the team was able to clinch a playoff berth with a 12-12 record, but they were unable to top West Middlesex in the playoff quarterfinals on Feb. 25.
The five starters this year include sophomores Katelyn Young and Kaylee Mulligan, juniors Carlie Schlosser and Courtney Hess, and seniors Haley Hess and Marissa Henry. Schlosser, the team’s point guard said, “We all played together last year and know each other’s strengths and weaknesses, so I think we’ll work better as a team.”
The Lady Panthers’ record is 4-2 as they defeated the Youngsville Eagles last Thursday with a score of 68-30.
The ladies will be back in action tonight at home against Eisenhower. If you can’t be at the game, be sure to follow live updates on Twitter @PantherPressSHS.
