On Nov. 16, the Oswego Panthers varsity girl's basketball team played its second game of the season at home against the Glenbard South Titans and lost with a score 54-29. The starting lineup consisted of seniors Anna Johnson, Cameron Tarver, Kendall Fulton, junior Emily Mengerink, and freshman Ahlivia East.
After a season shortened by the COVID-19 pandemic, the boys varsity basketball team is ready to show up on the court. The coaches and players are excited to see a full schedule for some of the players’ first full varsity season.
This is very sad news for Panther fans, as over the past three years Oswego has seen tremendous growth in its basketball programs, both boys and girls.
During the Panthers’ six-game losing streak, senior guard Jack Kahoun has been out with a lower body injury. Throughout the season, Kahoun has played a large role in the Panthers’ offensive success, especially late in games. Without Kahoun, the Panthers have struggled at times to get their offense going, something that was evident late in the game against Yorkville.
The Panthers have had their ups and downs this season, but they are catching fire at the right time. A big part of that push is their senior core, which accounted for all but eight points in last night's game.
