Pantherettes Bring Home State Championship

The Duncanville Pantherettes reclaimed their crown on Saturday in San Antonio. The team brought home the girls basketball 6A State Championship on Saturday after defeating Cypress Creek 63-47. The title is the 11th in Duncanville High School history.

This is LaJeanna Howard's first year as head coach of the Pantherettes, and, for her, the victory is especially sweet. Howard won a state championship as a player, as a Pantherettes assistant coach and now has a state championship title as the Pantherettes head coach.
