Pana's Funneman signs with Southwestern Illinois College
Lane Funneman lost out on his junior year of baseball. Whether or not his senior year will happen is still yet to be seen, but he secured his future beyond that on Friday when he signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville.

“The staff of coaches and the baseball experience that they had there really stuck out to me,” said Funneman about his decision. “I also wanted to be in the GRAC (Great Rivers Athletic Conference), one of the premier JUCO college conferences, and one that gets a lot of recognition from 4-year schools and pro scouts.”

Pana XC seniors reveling in their opportunities
COVID-19 has had a great impact on high school sports across the country. Cross country and golf have been the only two sports that were able to be played in this fall season. Pana’s Brock Schoonover, Jesse Gruber, and Brianna Sarver were just three of those runners who were able to participate this season, but the trio never had an official senior night this season as the Pana program doesn’t host any home meets. Still, the Pana coaching staff wanted to honor its three seniors.

Pana’s Kady Perry was worried she might have lost a step after two weeks of quarantine due to possible COVID-19 exposure. As it turns out, maybe a little time off was just what she needed.

Panther golfers celebrated on senior night
On a gorgeous afternoon and a packed golf course, the Pana golf team honored its two seniors in Katelyn Townsend and Gabriel Wafford.

“They are both great kids. They excel in the classroom, make good choices, and give great effort at improving their golf game each day,” said Pana head coach Adam Metzger.

Townsend was out for the golf team last season and came back out again this year. MetGer said that he’ll remember her commitment to the golf team the most. “Despite working most days, she comes to golf for every second that she can before heading to work. When able, she stays late to play extra holes or hit on the range,” said Metger.
