“The Cascade games were tough,” said coach Rhanda EagleSpeaker. “It was like the girls forgot how to move their feet to the ball and how to talk on the court. The Power game was awesome! I did a lineup different than I usually do and the girls rolled with it beautifully and played extremely well together. They cheered each other on and it was just great.”
The Panthers will host North Star on Thursday, Oct. 10, to round out the week’s action.
