By Terrance Chisolm

The West Gadsden Panthers completed their journey Wednesday night in Lakeland and secured a State Championship with a 64-44 win over Wildwood High. The Panthers brought their aggressive defense into the championship game and held the Wildcat offense in check. Offensively, West Gadsden's big men stepped up in a major way, including Mark Bradwell who had a double-digit game. Despite a tough start in the 4th quarter the Panthers regained their compsure and closed out the game like true champions. The team celebration was full of genuine emotion as they received their medallions and team trophy. Much love to the new 1A State Champions. Panther Nation let's go!
