The Cy Springs varsity girls basketball team has a lot of big things going on.

The Panthers are going to the playoffs for the first time in 10 years. Senior Tiffany Mack has also made history by scoring 1,000 career points, which is the first Panther to do so in 10 years.

Mack isn’t letting her, or the team’s s success interfere with the classroom.

“It means a lot to me that I’ve reached this far,” said Mack.”Keeping on track to keep my grades up and get to class on time.”

The team is also doing a blanket drive on Tuesday Jan. 29 in honor of one of their players losing their brother to cancer.

“In our program we preach family first, so it’s important that she knows as a basketball team she knows that we are family,” said coach Taneisha Rogers.

Cy Springs currently has an overall record of 20-8, and a district record of 10-3.
