HANCOCK - The Hancock Panthers got their first win of the season on Monday night when they clawed out a 41-29 victory over the South Hagerstown Rebels.
"It feels great for the girls to get our first victory," Hancock coach Rocky Wills said. "They have been working real hard since day one. The key to the win was that our girls did not quit. Even when we turned the ball over and missed some easy shots, we did not quit."
Sophomore center Jennifer Willison had 11 points and 14 rebounds for Hancock (1-3). Freshman point guard Kris Creek added six rebounds and three steals for the Panthers.
"I think they wanted to win more than we did," South Hagerstown coach Stacey Zeger said.
Senior guard Shamika Slater came off of the bench to score a team-high 10 points and grab five rebounds for South (0-2). Jamie Fowler had five steals and Sade Williams pulled down eight rebounds for the Rebels.
