The Freshman Girls Basketball team lost a tough battle to undefeated Coldwater last night. The first time they played them they lost by 14, but last night they showed grit and fought tough until the end, only losing by 2. The Panthers outrebounded the Cardinals by 15, but Coldwater’s shots were falling and Western’s were not. Each team member played a significant role on both defense and offense. Leading the team was Aijah Wallen with 8 points and 10 rebounds. Ashley Sturgill dominated on defense with 4 steals as well as 4 rebounds and 6 points. Haileigh Kalenchick, Taylor McMurtrie, Jocie Berry, Sophia Shroyer and Macee Aumack also scored for the Panthers. The final score was 32-30. The Panthers will play their make-up game tomorrow morning at Pennfield.
