As February draws to a close and the beginnings of Spring sports wait around the corner, the time for basketball season finals are upon us. Park City took part in the District 6C tournament in Worden at Huntley Project High School Feb. 17-22.

The Panthers began last Wednesday where the boys played in game five of round one versus Reed Point-Rapelje’s Renegades. Park City fell short by just a few points and lost 51-47. The girls first-round game was last Thursday, game five in their bracket, and lost to Roberts 42-41. Games continued on Friday, but both boys and girls teams for the Panthers would meet their end and call it a season.

The boys played again in game nine and beat Broadview-Lavina 59-35, but in the loserout game against Absorkee, they faced another close loss of 53-48. The Lady Panthers played BLV in game seven of the girls bracket, and succeeded a win of 45-16. Saturday they advanced to game 12 where they played against Bridger, but lost 50-32 and couldn’t continue forward in the tournament.

Standing with records of 11-6 for the boys, and 12-5 for the girls by the end of it all, the Panthers still walk away with more wins than losses. Both teams were unable to advance any further in the post-season, but the small-town rural pride of Park City’s community keeps the kid’s chins up, as their support only gets the Panthers more prepared for seasons to come.
