Pantherettes 26-0 and Top State and National Rankings

Filed under: DISD,Sports |

The Duncanville Pantherettes are atop the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Association rankings and are in the top 3 in the national USA Today and MaxPreps rankings. The Pantherettes already have wins over nationally ranked Plano West and Blackman (Murfreesboro, TN).  Couple this with not losing a district game since 2010 and it’s easy to say that the Pantherettes are on a roll.

But, Coach Cathy Self-Morgan does not what to see her players lose their focus. After a 64-37 victory the Pantherettes came back to the gym and went through another practice session. Midlothian had outscored Duncanville 16-2 in the final period, but despite the 27-point victory Self-Morgan saw some things the Pantherettes needed to work on.

Duncanville will travel to Grand Prairie on Tuesday night for a 6 p.m. game against the Lady Gophers. On Friday night Duncanville hosts DeSoto at 6 p.m.

The three Pantherette seniors have signed letters to continue at the collegiate level. Ciera Johnson will be playing for Louisville, Madison Townley at North Texas University and Rosie Davis will be playing at Xavier.
