Panthers set to host Ethel Friday

By LAURENCE HILLIARD,

The French Camp boys and girls basketball teams returned to action Tuesday following the Christmas break with games at Noxapater. It was the first Region 5-1A action of the season. The teams have region games at home Friday against Ethel.

“Before Christmas, I thought we were headed in the right direction,” said boys’ coach Robert Leathers. “You have to get everybody refocused. I'm hoping we can get there pretty quickly.”

The Lady Panthers ended 2019 on  a high note, with victories over Hebron Christian and Winona, but were off for 25 days prior to the Noxapater game.

Region home games with West Lowndes scheduled for Dec. 16 were postponed due to the threat of severe weather and rescheduled for Jan. 23.
