Put-in-Bay Basketball Cancels January 11th Home Games

Great Lakes Islands Basketball Tournament

Panthers on fast break to the basket

Due to potential inclement weather and visiting team travel distance, Saturday, 11 January 2020, games are canceled.  The Panthers will return to action Saturday, January 18th, versus the Woodward Polar Bears.

Put-in-Bay basketball did play Thursday night at Monclova Christian Academy. The Thunder swept the Panthers in friendly competition.  The girls battled tough, albeit a bit rusty as it was their first game after a long holiday break.  The final score was 22-32.  Cecilia Glauser led the team with 8 points.  The boy’s team went into competition against a very strong Thunder team.  The boys were defeated 20-53.  Doug Steidl led the team with 12 points.  The girl’s current record is 5-2 and the boy’s record is 1-7.  Both teams look to match their effort with better execution to get back into the winning column.



Great Lakes Trophy Arrives

The Great Lakes Islands Basketball trophy the Lady Panthers won in the competition held in December 2019 has arrived on South Bass Island.  Put-in-Bay School will proudly display it in the trophy case in the hallway leading to the gymnasium.  It will serve as a symbol of the team’s hard work and as a reminder to pursue goals with dedication.  Thanks to Mackinac Island School for mailing the trophy!  Photos by Shuffenecker
