Varsity girls’ basketball reflects on spectacular season

Alex Gonzalez, Sports Editor


The Lady Panthers played a hard fought game last night against Grosse Pointe North. They entered as the underdogs to a team that is four divisions higher. Regardless of the huge division gap, the Panthers did not go down without a fight. Throughout the first half, the team consistently scored from behind the arc and disrupted opposing players. They went into the locker rooms feeling good with a 31-28 lead. They proved they were a much better team than GPN bargained for and could be a force to be reckoned with. They stayed strong, until an unfortunate event happened midway through the third. Senior Chantae’ Parker went for a loose ball as another player landed on her leg. Parker had to be helped off the court and had her ankle looked at. Following the loss, Roseville lost their momentum. They never did look quite like the same team. Even after Parker’s return they couldn’t get back into rhythm. The Panthers fell 58-43.

Despite the loss, the Panthers pieced together an incredible season. They managed to finish 16-6 overall, while winning the MAC Silver title with a 9-1 conference record. Also, to note, they defeated Lincoln, Tower, and St. Clair to win the MAC Silver-Bronze tournament. The girls endured a long season and proved that Roseville can accomplish great things. Seniors, Nija Collier, Chantae’ Parker, Ta’Laja Edwards, and Rayven Newberry leave behind a legacy in which they elevated the play of the team throughout their four years. As one season comes to a close, they must look ahead and work to continue their success.
