Panthers Wrap Up Regular Season and Shoot for the Aud

The Panthers celebrate graduating senior Mitchell Parkman at Senior Night this week.

Thetford Academy’s varsity boys played their last home game of the regular season on Wednesday night. Before the game, the Panthers celebrated their lone senior Mitchell Parkman, who has been an important part of the team’s successful season. The boys’ 73-39 win vs. U-32 adds to their season record of 17-2 – and keeps their top seeded placement in Division III.

The Panthers have one more regular season game to go (Friday, February 16th @ Hazen) before the playoffs begin next week. All signs are pointing to another run at the Aud, where last year the Panthers were knocked out in the semifinals in a tough game vs. Hazen. With Hazen seeded #2 this year, there’s a good chance of a rematch between the teams – and lots of excitement on the court.

The varsity girls have three more regular season games on the schedule, starting tonight with a Cancer Awareness night at home – fans should wear pink to show their support! On Saturday, the Panthers head to U-32, before playing their last home game vs. Oxbow on Wednesday. Wednesday will also be the girls’ senior night, celebrating graduating seniors Addison Cadwell, Charlize Brown, Whitney Lewis, and Kelsey Bogie.

With several injuries among the team’s veteran players this season, the Panthers have shown tenacity and flexibility in the lead-up to the playoffs. Division III girls begin the playoffs the week of February 26 and anything is possible. Let’s show our Panther Pride and cheer on our athletes!
