   The first game of the postseason for the girl’s basketball team was a success resulting in a major win against St.Teresa’s Academy.
   Alecia Westbrook, sophomore, lead the team in points with 26, making 10 of 11 free throw attempts. Westbrook also had a team high with seven defensive rebounds and had one blocked shot.
Dymeria Guillory was aggressive in the paint and pulled in five offensive rebounds and had a total of 13 points.
Finally Emily Dinovo made her mark with two three-pointers.
During the game the team communicated well and caused St.Teresa’s to have a total of 27 turnovers.
With just under a minute left in the half with South down two points, South substituted in junior, Raquel Reid who has been out the whole season with an ACL injury. She had two shot attempts missing both but the crowd gave a standing ovation as she left the floor.
In the final minutes of the game the Lady Panthers knew they had done enough to finish the game with a win and slowly ran down the clock while draining their free throws. The team celebrated their win and began to prepare themselves for the next game and today’s practice.
South is looking forward to the next game for the Lady Panthers, which will be tomorrow night, March 3rd, against North Kansas City for the district final game. Come out and support your Lady Panther Basketball.
