TOPIC: E'town's state runner-up
OUR VIEW: Lady Panthers did city, county proud
Of all the girls' high school basketball teams that started practice back in October, the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers were one of two teams left standing for Saturday's state championship.
From nearly 300 teams, the field was whittled down to 2 — Elizabethtown and the Louisville Iroquois in Saturday night's final at Western Kentucky University. The Lady Panthers fell just short of their state title goal, losing in overtime, 55-47.
