Pallotti Defeats the Patriots

This past Friday, the Lady Panthers Varsity basketball team traveled to John Carrol to compete in a conference matchup against the Patriots, defeating them 74-55.

The starters for this game included Sophmore Makayla Waleed and Juniors Nhaikya Smith, Jania Hall, Jasmine Valentine, and Lindsay Thweatt. This Pallotti team is young with no seniors on the team.

The team fought hard to secure the win, led by Hall and Valentine who tied in leading points with 17 points each with Valentine also recording 17 rebounds. Smith followed closely behind them with 15 points and 10 assists. 

This was a big game for Pallotti because just last season they lost to John Carrol in the playoffs. After this win, they are 4-0 on the season.

Pallotti’s Coach Joe Mathews is very proud of what the girls have accomplished so far.
