Qualifying for the sectional tournament was big, said ONeill, who noted that the Panthers went into the 2003-2004 season with no returning starters. We really had a good year.
We finished with 10 wins, which is more than I thought we would have at the beginning of the season. Im very happy with the season. We beat Goshen twice and had a lot of big wins.
Season Lowlight: ONeill said that there was no lowlight for his squad this season.
Everything was positive, he commented. These guys improved so much during the year. I think this team improved more than any other team I have coached.
Other comments: The Panthers will lose only one senior starter, David Davila.
We have a good nucleus of players returning next year, ONeill said.
