Senior Games Coming Up, Playoffs in Sight
February 15, 2023
The Panthers are nearing the end of an exciting basketball season, with the playoffs in sight. The girls are wrapping up their regular season this Thursday with their senior celebration before their last home game vs. Harwood. TA will be honoring seniors Taylor West and Madi Mousley, as well as JV senior Shisi Dai. In the last two weeks, the girls have won every contest with the exception of a Valentine’s Day defeat vs. Division II’s Lake Region. Heading into their last regular season game, the Panthers stand at 14-4 and are ranked third behind the Hazen Wildcats (18-1) and the Windsor Yellowjackets (17-2).
The Panther boys have a few more games to go, but they’re looking good for playoff season. They’ve been mostly on the road in the last two weeks, picking up wins vs. Randolph, Lake Region, and Blue Mountain, with a tough defeat in a close game (35-32) v. Peoples Academy and a 74-55 loss to Hazen on Monday night. This week they’ll take on Lyndon and Williamstown at home (Wednesday and Saturday). After their last away game on Monday at Montpelier the boys will be back to celebrate their seniors at home in their last regular season home game. TA will honor the team’s only senior, Jacob Gilman. The Panthers go into their last week up 12-4, ranked 3rd in Division III behind Hazen and Winooski.
