Put in Bay Sports 2020-2021 Ready to Grrrowl!

Put-in-Bay Sports continues with Panther Basketball 2020-2021.  The season starts with the traditional 6 am morning madness practice.  Although not a normal morning madness, 16 players will suit up for the Panthers this season.  Ten girls and six boys will fill out their squads.  Coach Schuffenecker made many modifications to allow students to stay healthy and participate.  The kids are hungry to compete and have a great season.  The motto this year is “Whatever it Takes.”  More effort is asked of this year’s student-athletes, but with great senior leadership the Panthers look for continued success.  Get your Grrrowl on!
