2001 Lady Panther Softball Update


The Lady Panther Softball team had a great season, making post-season play and making the tournament in Oxford before bowing out to arch-rival Lineville who eventually went on and made the Final Four in the State Semi-Final round. The team was comprised mostly of Freshman and Sophomores so they should be solid for the next few years and we appear to have a good future in store for all Lady Panther Sports!

Congratulations once again go out to our Jr. High Lady Panthers Basketball team, they won the county championship and lost only once this season. It appears as though our ladies basketball program has a good future!
