E wen-Trout Creek showed the different ways it can win during this week’s Division 4 District 97 tournament.
In Wednesday’s semifinal win over Ontonagon, the Panthers went inside to Abbie LeGault and she dominated with 19 points and 17 rebounds. In Friday night’s final, Jeffers took that away for the most part and the Panthers’ guards were the top three scorers.
It all added up to E-TC’s first district championship since 2005 as the Panthers (17-4) beat Jeffers (11-11) 47-37 Friday night.
“It’s something you dream about as a little kid, but now that we’ve actually done it, it’s amazing, it’s awesome,” E-TC sophomore Elise Besonen said.
