The Banks County High School Lady Leopards started the basketball season with their first game last Thursday evening.
The Lady Leopards traveled to Gainesville to compete against the Lady Lions of Lakeview Academy. Lakeview carried the win 53-36 over Banks County, but the Lady Leopards noted some key points that will benefit their progress this season.
After dropping the season opener to Lakeview, the Lady Leopards competed in the Jackson County Thanksgiving Tournament Monday and Tuesday. On Monday, Banks County competed against Oglethorpe. The Lady Leopards will be seeing more of the Lady Patriots later this season in sub-region contests. Banks carried Monday’s tournament contest 43-17 over Oglethorpe's Lady Patriots.
Tuesday, the Lady Leopards were overwhelmed by the Jackson County Lady Panther's offense, but brought home second place from the tourney after falling to Jackson County 53-25.
