The Deck the Halls with Basketballs tourney in Jerseyville ended with the home team winning the title, The Lady Panthers had set their sights on bringing home some championship trophies this year. With a second place finish in the Alton tourney to start the year, that goal was on their mind. With the CM Lady Eagles moving out it opened up a clear opportunity to bring home the hardware this year. Coach Kevin Stroebels girls responded. In an all Mississippi Valley final the Lady Panthers used a great defensive effort to bear Triad 50-30.

The All tourney team consisted of:

  • MVP Clare Breden of Jerseyville. Clare was able to step up every time the team needed her. There were slow starts and fast starts but whenever it was most important, she was there. Clare showed great range on her shot and the ability to use the dribble drive to get into the lane. Once she is in the lane Clare can finish with both hands in many ways.
  • Abby Manns of Jerseyville is a great defender and can score too. Abby is long and can use that to her advantage on the floor. She rebounds well for her size, deflects passes
