The PHS varsity girls basketball team went to 5-1 in conference play with a 62-53 win at Monroe City last Tuesday.

The victory kept the Lady Panthers in the hunt for a Clarence Cannon Conference title trailing only Macon (3-0), which must still play four more league games.

Palmyra, whose only conference loss came at home against Macon, Jan. 31, will host Highland Friday in the conference and season finale.

Clark County is also in the hunt at 3-1, with their only loss against Palmyra.

The Lady Panther’s victory over Monroe City was the third in three contests this season.
