Panther Fans – 

I hope and pray that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and is looking forward to the holiday season!  The approaching winter brings new opportunities, as our athletes are already underway competing in swim, basketball, and soccer.

As our fall seasons have concluded, both our Volleyball (8-4) and Football (4-4) teams made it the TAPPS Area Round of the State Playoffs.  In addition, Cross Country had 9 runners compete in the TAPPS State Championship Meet (4 boys, 5 girls).

The TAPPS All-State and All-District selections for the fall sports will be posted and communicated by the end of the month.

Cheer and Pantherettes had fabulous performances throughout football season and will continue to support our basketball teams.  In addition, Cheer is gearing up for the TAPPS Cheer Championships.
