To sum up the season coach Richard Rojas said, “I am very proud of these young men. We took Consolation at Crane, Second at Reagan County, Third Place in District, and these young men won themselves a BI-DISTRICT GOLD BALL, something that had not been accomplished in awhile.”
This season also saw a Panther fans involvement high as this year’s team “also brought some excitement back to Panther Basketball and The SEC. The home crowds were amazing,” concluded coach Rojas as he thanked the community for the support.
