The Lady Panthers of Pinewood Prep rolled over the Swampcats to close out LMA’s State Championship run on Feb. 19. The #1 seeded Panthers had no mercy as they executed a well-oiled game plan against the Lady Cats.
The Monarchs placed Jire Brunson on the Region 6AAA All-Region Team. Brunson averaged over 11 points per game and was 64 percent from the free throw line. He averaged five rebounds per game throughout the season and two steals. Brunson is a graduating senior and will be sorely missed on next year’s Monarch team.
The Swampcats fought a see-saw battle against the Barons on Feb. 5 and eked out the win in the final seconds. In their last home game of the season, the win was fitting to honor the Seniors on the team.
