Event Set to Celebrate Consecutive Pantherette Championships

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Pantherettes have not only brought home back-to-back state 5A girls basketball state championship trophies, they’ve earned Duncanville a place in the history books. With their season district record of 14-0 and an overall record of 42-0, the team is the first 5A school to achieve 42 wins and no losses in a single season. The varsity team wasn’t the only one with a successful year  – the JV and the Freshmen Red and Blue teams all ended their seasons with great success. Gathering players, coaches, and parents together on March 28, the Duncanville High School girls basketball program will honor the efforts of each team at their annual banquet. Each player will be honored with a certificate recognizing her contributions, and there are plans to present the varsity Pantherettes with their State Championship rings.
