The Lady Panthers ended their regular season with another dominant victory over the Tuscola Mountaineers at the Panther Den on Monday night. The team appeared as though the week long break they had as a result of last week's snow storm had affected them very little as they held Tuscola scoreless until the last minute of the first quarter. The pace of the game didn't change much throughout as FHS took the win with a final score of 77-28.

The 2A Western North Carolina Athletic Conference tournament began on Tuesday. The Lady Panthers went 13-1 in the conference and earned themselves a bye in the first round.
