Lady Panthers ready to prove themselves

by | Aug 13, 2020 | Sports

Injuries were the name of the game for the Plano East Lady Panthers in 2019. Key players missing district play resulted in an underachieving season. With this in mind, head coach Cathy Manderson said keeping players on the court in 2020 should create improved results.

“This year, as long as we stay healthy, we will be able to show the true talent of our team and level up from last year,” Manderson said.

The Lady Panthers lost three seniors from 2019, as well as, London Cummings, who is choosing to play club ball.
