The Panthers women's basketball team had their finals hopes dashed last night after getting bested last night by the Mount Saint Mary Vikings 76-44.


It was a hard loss for the Panthers, and six of the seniors who just ended their college career. Captain and senior Amber Jones, played 40 minutes, scoring 13 points, with one rebound and four steals and was the team’s leading scorer. Senior Guard Amber Yarter lead the team in rebounds, having five of her own. Yarter also had one steal and was in the double digits, scoring 11 points.


The underclass players looked up to the seniors throughout the season. The seniors gave encouragement and unconditional support, they said.


Sophomore Dejeana Peoples had two rebounds, and two steal’s during the game, said she was sad to see the season end but that she learned valuable lessons.


“I looked up to the seniors to help me when I'm beating myself up," Peoples said.


The season has now come to an end, with the Panthers final record at 15-12.
