SnapMe Creative Team of the Week: Glen Oaks Lady Panthers Basketball
by Hunter Bower // GeauxPreps.com Owner
Hard work pays off.
It’s the mantra which best describes the Glen Oaks girl’s basketball team.
A program once drenched in championship gold has struggled over the last few seasons which includes a two-win campaign in 2020-21. Fast forward two years and the Lady Panthers are on the verge of completing one of the most impressive turnarounds in the state.
With one game remaining on the regular season slate, Glen Oaks hopes to lock up its 19th victory, the most in four years, as well as a chance of becoming co-champions of District 6-3A.
The Lady Panthers took down league leader Parkview Baptist, 66-62, Tuesday in overtime to force a three-way tie along with University Lab. A win against Port Allen in Friday’s district finale is essential to the overall turnaround program but is not crucial in terms of the overall goal.
A state championship would be the cherry on top of what has already become a magical season.
