Panther Basketball season has begun! Only three weeks into their season, the upper school boys team recently had a district win against Grace Christian with Nemo Holmes leading the team with 28 points and senior RJ Casey (16 points) and freshman Evan Jordan (10 points) following. Both girls and boys played again against USN on Friday (12/3) and swept all three games.
Middle school basketball started strong last week with both boys and girls teams winning against Christ the King and the 5th and 6th grade girls team defeating Goodpasture. With new head coach Ed Sanders at the helm, the middle school boys basketball team looks like they will have a successful season led by strong 7th and 8th graders who can make an immediate impact. On the girls' side of things, Coach Jen Archie has had great success with some new 7th graders and two 6th graders — Ava Zenner and Ella Johnson — playing up.
We look forward to watching all of our FRA teams compete on the basketball court this season!
