Almost Defeated the Undefeated

The Panther took on Lee's Summit (LS) last Friday night at Lee's Summit. LS entered the game undefeated and ranked #2 in the state polls. They average nearly 80 points per game. The Panthers played their textbook defense and led LS 30-27 after 3 quarters. A very exciting fourth quarter that came down to free throws. Unfortunately, LS made their free throws and the Panthers came up short with a 50-54 loss. Many people left the game impressed with the effort of the Panthers.

Seeking Championships

The Freshmen A and B teams are in their final tournaments of the season. Both teams are playing tonight in the championship game of their brackets.

What a Game

The defending state champions, Blue Springs South, came to Ray-Pec last Tuesday night. The Panthers came out ready to play! Leading by 9 after first quarter the Panthers were in control. Entering the 4th, the Panthers still had a lead but one of the best players in the state, KJ Robinson from Blue Springs South, tried to change the game. He willed the Jags back into the game by scoring a series of very tough baskets. Never giving up the lead, the Panthers could not beat the Jaguars in regulation.....it was overtime. In overtime, the Panthers came up with several big plays by nearly every player that played. In the end, the Panthers won 49-47. It was a game that fans will remember for a long time.

Up Next
