The varsity girls basketball team has had an outstanding five-day stretch, which includes impressive wins over division foes Zion Christian Academy, Christ Presbyterian Academy, and Providence Christian Academy. The Panthers have used outstanding defense and a balanced offensive attack to win six straight games as they head into the final two weeks of the regular season.
Fresh off the holiday break and a very solid showing at the prestigious Father Ryan Invitational, the FRA varsity wrestling squad returned home to the friendly confines for the FRA Panther Gymnasium this week to host a three way match versus Division II foes Ensworth and Donelson Christian Academy (DCA). The Panthers swept the meet by defeating Donelson Christian Academy 54-12 and Ensworth by a score of 51-18!
The varsity girls basketball team won its third game in a row on Tuesday, defeating St. Cecilia 60-45. Junior Zharia Hutchinson led the Panthers with 23 points and has now scored more than 20 points in three of the last four games. With this win, the team improves to 9-7 on the season.
The varsity boys team fell in a tight match up against Knowledge Academies 44-41. The Panthers were led by juniors Kingston Gardner and Sean Casey, who had 19 and 13 points, respectively.
The Panthers will travel to Zion Christian Academy on Friday. The girls will tip off at 6 p.m., and the boys will follow.
