Panthers News · State Champion BlackSwish Honors Award Winners


Nearly 5 months ago, the BlackSwish captured the IHSAA 3A State Championship.  Our girls basketball parents (Jenn Wise) made it possible to finally recognize our STATE CHAMPIONSHIP team Monday night in Wakarusa. Everyone including all adults were masked and properly distanced! We were able to hand out their state championship rings, a Yeti water bottle from the athletic department, and their State Championship T-shirts.

A season recap with award winners, statistical accomplishments, etc.:
