In what was a must win to guarantee themselves a chance for a playoff birth, the NPHS Varsity Boys team fell short, falling to crosstown rival Thousand Oaks by a score of 56-65. The loss leaves the Panthers hoping for an At Large bid for the playoffs. Official playoff teams should be announced this weekend. Everyone cross their fingers that we are chosen.
If not, it has been a fun season for the Panthers and their new head coach. And, with a strong freshman and sophomore classes in the system, the future looks bright for the NPHS boys basketball teams moving forward.
Thank you to everyone who supported the NPHS basketball teams this season.
