On Wednesday, Feb. 19, the girls varsity basketball team played Madison High School at home in one of their final games of the season. The girls struggled in the beginning of the season for a while, but through harder, more efficient practices and better communication as a team, they have been able to consistently win their past few games.

By halftime, the Panthers were up 35-15. Many junior varsity players came up during this game to experience playing on the varsity level before the season ends. In the end, the girls took a big win against Madison with a final score of 56-19. Some player highlights include senior Rim Bououdina’s 17 points, six rebounds, and three blocks, as well as junior Grace Magee’s nine points and seven rebounds.

“I was most proud of the shot I threw up in the second quarter,” Bououdina said. “I grabbed the ball and threw it up like a football. I was just trying to have fun so I was surprised to see myself make it.”

The team will be at home on Friday, Feb. 21 for “Senior Night.”
