Panther boys' wins are more than victories

By JIM LANGHAM

The Paulding boys won two basketball games over the weekend. In so doing, they accomplished much more than chalking up “Ws” in the win columns. Their 49-37 win over Crestview on Friday evening vaulted the Panthers square in the middle of the Northwest Conference race by improving their NWC record to 2-1.

Then, on Saturday night, the local squad rolled over Fairview, 66-45, to better position themselves in upcoming sectional play later in the winter.

“We did two good things this weekend,” said Paulding head coach Shawn Brewer. “By beating Crestview, we’re back right back in the conference race again. Then, by defeating Fairview, we bettered ourselves in sectional seeding.”
