Those who have followed my blog know that, the Parkview High School Lady Panthers are one of my favorite teams to shoot. Thus, having photographed the team nearly a half dozen times this season, I found it a challenge to get new and interesting images of the girls. For this game, I abandoned shooting the typical game pics (jump shots, rebounds, etc.), in favor of more candid images of the Lady Panthers and their fan base.
It was clear from the start that, the North Forsyth Lady Raiders have never encountered the speed and intensity of the Parkview Press. In their defense, most teams don’t have the personnel to simulate this during practice. North Forsyth simply had no answer for the relentless Lady Panthers. Final score: Parkview 48, North Forsyth 16. Enough said.
The Parkview girls are a playful bunch, although they are strictly business when game time arrives. Sometimes you wonder if they realize the gravity of having secured a spot in the Elite 8. I’ve been in gyms where schools proudly display their sweet 16 banners, so having made it to this rarefied air of the Elite 8 is indeed a major accomplishment. Next up for the Lady Panthers, the defending AAAAA champions, Norcross High School Lady Blue Devils.
