to head coach Steve Adam.

            "The end of the tournament was a disappointment," he said. "There were a lot of tough close matches. But at the end of the day, I can say we wrestled well as a team."

            Matt Milkowich (106 pounds), Matt Marin (113) and Zach Rozanski (138) each reached the gold medal match on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Pottsgrove High School, but lost. Keaton Durning (145) and Soren Svanson (160) finished fourth. Shane Freeh (120) and Austin DiDomenico (120) ended up in sixth place.

consecutive games and is running the floor aggressively.

           "We're finally starting to play up to expectations." head coach Jessica Walton said.

            The Panthers started the stretch with a pair of home victories. They defeated Old Fields (MD) 47-43 in overtime on Thursday, Dec. 9. Chardae Stone led all scorers with 23 points. Janayshia Brown contributed 10 points.

Stone posted a game-high 19 points. Brown delivered 17 points, and Akasha Santos contributed 14 points.

            On Monday the Panthers suffered a 46-31 road loss to the Barrack Hebrew Academy in the Tri-County Independent School League. Stone scored a team-high 12 points.
