“I think we should finish 10-3 in league, and we are hitting on all cylinders coming in to the CCC tournament and sectionals,” said coach Tyler Jewell. “We are expecting to finish in the top three in the CCC, and if we play as a team, should make it to the district tournament as a team — maybe for the first time in school history.”
The Panthers were to travel to Preble Shawnee on Tuesday, Sept. 20, before heading to Stillwater Valley golf course on Thursday for the CCC tournament.
