Senior outfielder, South Carolina commit, and MLB draft prospect Thad Ector moves up to bat in the Panthers’ first home game of the season against the North Forsyth Raiders this past Tuesday. Starr’s Mill came out swinging and kept the pressure on North Forsyth to take the game 11-1 in five innings. The Panthers took control early with six runs in the first inning and never looked back. Ector had a two-run homerun to help the Panthers extend their lead later in the game.

Freshman forward Mia Hargrove sets up for a free kick during the Lady Panthers’ home match against the St. Pius X Lady Golden Lions this past Tuesday. Due to an incomplete roster and inexperienced players on the field, the girls could not handle St. Pius and suffered a 4-0 defeat. Starr’s Mill had trouble getting past midfield all game long, only putting up one shot on goal. In contrast, St. Pius racked up 24 shots on goal on top of keeping the game in Panther territory.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Lavonte David waits for the upcoming snap during the team’s 31-23 wild card game win against the Washington Football Team at FedEx Field on Jan. 9. Last night, David and the Buccaneers successfully shut down the Kansas City Chiefs and their offense to win Super Bowl LV, 31-9. Kansas City did not score a single touchdown throughout the Super Bowl, the first time the team did not score a touchdown in a game since quarterback Patrick Mahomes took control under center. On top of six tackles, David helped contain Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, limiting Kansas City’s most productive receiver to 10 receptions and 133 yards.

I present the Region 2-AAAAA championship trophy to the Starr’s Mill football team after their 38-7 victory over the McIntosh Chiefs last season. Since I really started getting into sports, I have grown to love several aspects of them. Covering Panther football’s 2018 quarterfinal game against the Dutchtown Bulldogs signifies my favorite sports moment and symbolizes why sports matter.

Cody Calafiore (middle) celebrates making it to the final three with fellow houseguests Nicole Franzel and Enzo Palumbo in season 22 of the CBS reality TV show “Big Brother.” “Big Brother: All-Stars” came to its conclusion last night. Calafiore dominated the game and it all paid off when he won the $500,000 grand prize by a 9-0 vote over Palumbo. Whether it be socially or strategically effective or being a competition beast, Calafiore played every aspect of the Big Brother game flawlessly, and earned the victory after losing in the first round six years ago.

Against some stiff competition, the Panthers outlasted Union Grove 19-14 in a suspenseful finale. In this game, we saw how the Panthers reacted to a similar style offense, the resolve from a sophomore quarterback, and a level of speed the Panther backfield may have for the first time in a while.
