|Sterlington sees bright basketball future|
The Sterlington High School basketball program made great improvement in both girls and boys basketball over the course of the 2008-2009 season.
The Sterlington Panthers (12-18) played with two eighth-graders and two freshman as significant contributors on a team that won many games with tough defense and a "never say die" mentality.
"We were good defensively," Sterlington head coach Kevin Caballero said."We had a lot of different guys come out and contribute in many different ways to win some ball games for us."
Max Cook led the way for the Panthers with 14 points per game. Blair Holland also scored in double figures for the Panthers.
With Blair being the only senior this year, the Sterlington program will return 12 varsity players next season.
The returning players should give the Panthers a chance to make a big push toward improving their 1-7 district 2-2A mark.
Other young teams like Jonesboro-Hodge and Farmerville might have overachieved this season, which complicates things for the Panthers going into next season with championship aspirations.
For the Lady Panthers, their dream season came to a halt with a 63-16 loss at Evangel Christian Academy in Shreveport Thursday night.
LaKelia Pounds scored eight points to lead the Lady Panthers (14-18). Head coach Darlene Eubanks must be credited for the playoff appearance after inheriting a team without a district win the season before her arrival.
In her second year, Eubanks took the team to the playoffs as the No.31 seed after an exhilarating 49-47 home win over Jonesboro-Hodge to end the regular season.
The win was enough to earn the Lady Panthers their first Class 2A playoff spot in four years and the first for Eubanks at Sterlington.
The future is bright and exciting for a Sterlington program that will work hard over the summer to get faster, stronger and proud of what they are building in the Sterlington community.
