In the 2ndAnnual Carol Vick Memorial game, which is dedicated to the memory of Climax-Scotts girls basketball coach Josh Vick’s mother, who passed away in 2001 after fighting breast cancer, the host Panthers defeated Colon 43-27.
The game served as a fundraiser for community members battling cancer.
“Colon Coach Robbie Hattan is a good friend and we could not do this event without Colon’s participation,” Vick said. “I feel blessed that he and the community of Colon are such great friends to make this event happen. It allows us to keep in perspective that basketball is an educational program, and we have more important things we are trying to accomplish.”
Peyton Nabozny led the Panthers with 11 points as the squad improved to 8-1 overall and 6-1 in the SCAA.
“Overall, it was a special night,” Vick added. “We came together for a great cause and built some great memories. I was happy with the intensity tonight. I did not think we played our best game on Tuesday, but tonight we played with better effort and poise; we executed much better overall. We received contributions from every player which was a key to our success. Breauna Everdeen had another great game on defense, and even though neither scored tonight, I was pleased with the play of freshmen Emily Braithwaite and Brianna Butler, who made great strides tonight playing quality defense and taking care of the basketball.”
