NEW LEXINGTON, Ohio – The New Lexington Lady Panthers came in to Thursday night fresh off of securing their first Muskingum Valley League basketball title since 1991.
The Small School division champs are one of the youngest teams in the league — their rotation primarily featuring two juniors, two sophomores and two freshmen. The future for the team may be brighter than any school in the division for the next few years, but on Thursday night, they had a chance to make a statement with a win against arguably the most dominant girls program of the 2010s: the Maysville Panthers.
FINAL: MAYSVILLE 33 – NEW LEXINGTON 59
