Spikers zip R-T-R

The Panther volleyball team upped their season record to 12-0 (5-0 in the 212 conference) with a 3-0 win over R-T-R Monday night. The game scores were 15-2, 15-7 and 15-4.

"We were consistent and are using the techniques that we have practiced," said Panther Coach Katie Gervais. "Laura Zwach played very well in the back row and everyone got a chance to play."

SWC falls easily

The T/M/B Panther volleyball team improved their season record to 12-0, 5-0 in the 212 conference, with a 3-0 win over Southwest Christian at Tracy Thursday night. Game scores were 15-4, 15-1 and 15-5.

The match opened with neither team able to get any offense going. The Eagles found they could play with the Panthers and were more aggressive than T/M/B. However once the Panthers got rolling they quickly put the match away.

So close, yet so far

Six turnovers, mistakes sink gridders

The Panther football team's undefeated season came to an end with a stinging 28-6 loss to BOLD at Olivia Friday night. T/M/B is now 4-1 for the season and 1-1 in the 212 Conference.

The Panthers had much the better of it in the early going and threatened to score on two of their first three possessions. However with third down and twelve yards to go on his own 20 yard line, BOLD senior running back Todd Seidl broke off his left end and raced 80 yards to the game's first score as time was running out in the first period. A pass for the two point conversion was good and the Warriors, despite being outplayed to that point, assumed an 8-0 lead.

The game then settled down into a typical hard-hitting T/M/B vs. BOLD game until, late in the third period, BOLD defensive back Chris Schmoll intercepted a Panther pass and returned it to T/M/B's nine yard line.
