Panthers faced Sunnyvale and Caddo Mills in Basketball

Though the Quinlan Ford High School Junior Varsity Girls and Varsity Boys did lose to the Sunnyvale Raiders in last weeks game, the Varsity Girls did come out on top in a close victory with a final score of 48 – 42.

Girls Athletic Coordinator and Head Girls Basketball Coach Jason Wallen said that this was actually a fun, hard fought game.

“Wow, what a game,” said Wallen. “This was one of those games that are fun to be involved in.  Both groups battled back and forth all night, we just were able to make a couple of shots, and close some defensive possessions late in the game.  We had a chance to ice it in regulation, but give Sunnyvale credit as they hit a big 3 to tie it at the end of regulation.  Our kids then just dug in and hit big shots.  It was an exciting atmosphere.”
