When the Panola College Fillies host the Tyler Junior College Lady Apaches on Wednesday, Sept. 14, it will be the first meeting of these two Region XIV powerhouse teams for this season.
“The Panola Fillies jumped to #7 in the NJCAA poll this week with a record of 9-2. Tomorrow night will be the game of the week in the nation for the NJCAA as two of the country’s top programs clash for the first time this year,” said Don Clinton, Vice President for Student Success and Athletic Director for Panola College.
The Fillies are undefeated in their only conference game against Navarro. TJC is ranked #15 in the NJCAA, and comes into the game with a 5-4 record. Wednesday’s match-up against Panola will be TJC’s first conference game of the year.
The game starts at 7 p.m. in A.J. Johnson Gymnasium. Charlie’s Bistro, adjacent to the gym, will be open for business serving a variety of sandwiches, snacks and drinks.
Paul Sabbatini, student activities director, asks students to wear green to show support for the Fillies.
“Panola College students will have a chance to win a $25 gift card to the Jalapeno Tree onto their Panola ID cards during intermission. Once the gift cards are won, participants will then have a chance to win $50 to be placed directly onto their Panola ID cards,” Sabbatini said.
“It’s our goal to fill the gym with fans and give our girls a great home court advantage as the Fillies work to go back to the National Tournament,” Clinton said.
