Frenship represents the only loss of the district slate for the Panthers in a double overtime thriller in Odessa back on January 19. Junior guard TJ Miller forced overtime with a clutch free throw, forced double overtime on free throws as well, and scored the go-ahead layup to clinch the win for the Tigers.
“We are so very proud of our guys and their ability to navigate through obviously one of the most unusual seasons in their playing careers,” said Tigers’ Head Coach Paul Page. “This is a testament to their passion for the game and their appreciation for the opportunity to practice every day and play over 25 games. This group has stepped up and met every challenge and as result have put themselves in a position to make school history and bring home a first ever District Championship at the 6A classification.”
The Tigers will honor five seniors at the next home game—Devin Hartfield, Jeb Smallwood, Logan Barkowsky, AB Melvin, and Myles Johnson. “This group has provided the much-needed leadership throughout this difficult season and off-season. We are excited to see them move on to great things in their lives,” said Page.
If you are unable to attend the game, you can listen to a live radio broadcast on Oldies 97.7 FM. The Senior Night activities will be recorded and posted here as soon as possible.
