Panther basketball team rewarded for another successful season

The Stone Memorial Panther basketball team was honored at a banquet last Wednesday night at Chuckles for their accomplishments this season.

Coach Neil Capps' team finished the season with a 22-10 record, including the District 4AA regular season and tournament championship, a 76-55 victory over Knox Carter in the opening round of Region 2AA play and a 59-56 loss to Knox Fulton in the region semi-finals at Knox Carter.

Brock Rowan was named District MVP, while Tyler Yoder was first team All-District, Justin Simmons, second team All-District, Gage Spence, third team All-District and Luke Matthews, fourth team All-District. Rowan was named TSWA All-State and All -Region.

Assistant Coach Jess Raby recognized the Panther freshmen. Team members were Mason Baucom, Avery Conley, Shade Foster, Austin Helton, Lane Smith, Ben Tollett, Chandler VanNatter and Ben Kindred.

"I enjoyed working with the freshmen and am very excited about this class," said Raby.

Capps thanked Raby and volunteer assistant Taylor Denny.

"They did a fantastic job. John Walker (Lady Panther coach) has been a co-hort to me this season," said Capps.

He recognized the varsity players and managers.

The managers were Lane Burgess, Tyler Roberts and Trace Cagle.

First were sophomores Parker Hill, Taylor Orme, Collin Russell, Brad Smith, Brandon Thomas and Gage Spence.

"Your young men have character and (play with a lot of) heart," added Capps.

Next were juniors Mitch Ball, Frankie Heilmeier, Luke Matthews, Justin Simmons and Tyler Yoder.

SMHS had just two seniors, Rowan and Matt Troino, who were the team leaders this year.

"Everybody qualified for a letter. You guys are part of 100 wins. What a legacy you have left to your teammates," concluded Capps, whose team will be moving into District 6AAA beginning next season.
