The junior high girls basketball shot their way into the playoffs this year. Playoffs for junior high have not been present for a couple years, but have returned. The girls had a stellar regular season, going 10-5 led by eighth graders Kaylee Mulligan, Madi Mondi, and Katelyn Young. “We knew we had a couple good players this year, but we also knew that there were some good teams we had to play,” said Mulligan.
The girls have high expectations going into the playoffs. “We are going to win,” said Callie Craig, a forward for the team. The girls hope to advance in the first round of playoffs although the competition may be fierce. The playoffs begin on Nov. 3 where the Panthers have to play either Meadville, Cambridge, or Cochranton.
