On Saturday, Feb. 18, the varsity girls basketball team played St. Clair in a MAC Silver/Bronze tournament championship at Dakota High School. This year’s team is lead by seniors Rayven Newberry, Chantae’ Parker, Nija Collier, and Ta’Laja Edwards. At the beginning of the game, the Panthers got off to a slow start. When the first half ended, the score was 17-10 in favor of St. Clair. As soon as the second half started things took a turn and heated up.

“You practice how you play and we went out there on the court and handled our business, while giving it our all,” sophomore DeBraya Edwards said.

The Panthers came out strong as a team to come back and help defeat St. Clair in a collective effort. At the final buzzer, Roseville came out on top with a final score of 46-38. Collier finished with a total of 22 points and 18 rebounds and Parker contributing 16 points as well.

“Winning this tournament feels really good. We put a lot of hard work into this getting this far. Our coaches deserve much of the credit for what we accomplished because they taught us everything we know. I am hoping that from here on out, that this is a tradition by the team winning the tournament each year,” Parker said.
