The French Camp boys and girls basketball teams entered the Christmas break with identical 3-5 records. That’s a significant improvement over last year when the Panthers won one game during the season and the Lady Panthers were winless.
The French Camp Academy boys and girls split basketball games against Nanih Waiya and Kosciusko, with victories against Nanih Waiya and losses to Kosciusko.
The Panthers defeated Nanih Waiya 53-41, but lost to Kosciusko 59-27.
James and Paul Courtney, a pair of French Camp Academy graduates, teamed up to lead Nanih Waiya High School to the MHSAA Class 1A State Football Championship with a win over Hollandale Simmons.
The French Camp girls basketball team rallied from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit but came up just short in a 34-33 loss to Winona.
“I started three ninth graders and they were extremely nervous,” said Coach Pricilla Anderson.
