The weekend was business as usual for Georgiana’s basketball team as the Panthers defended their home turf against the Highland Home Flying Squadron Saturday night with a decisive 86-40 victory.

The game also doubled as Senior Night for the Panthers, and Georgiana’s seniors took it as an opportunity to leave an indelible mark on their alma mater with great performances.

Highland Home’s defense was powerless to slow down, let alone stop, a deep Georgiana offense with multiple tools.
