Pana girls beat Gillespie 56-29 on Sr. night
Though loaded with juniors and a whole host of underclassmen, the pana Panthers celebrated their two seniors on Wednesday night before they hosted Gillespie in a home SCC Conference contest. Shelby Edwards and Brayer Denton got to celebrate more than just their Senior Night on Wednesday, as the Panthers were able to come away with the 56-29 victory.

“I got to know Shelby quite a bit last year, as she played on JV with me,” said Pana coach Brent McKinney. “She does everything you ask of her and she is one of the hardest-working girls that there are. She is consistently tasked with pressuring the other team’s point guard and she also has the ability to run an offense and knock down a three when she’s needed.”
