10:00 am Dec. 4, 2017

The Harrison girls have picked up right where they left off last spring, when the Hoyas fell one point short in the state championship against Mays.

No panic for Southwest DeKalb girls

10:00 am Nov. 30, 2017

As a point of reference, Southwest DeKalb has some fairly recent history to indicate that a slow start doesn’t have to define a season.

In the 2012-13 season, the Panthers were 8-7 after 15 games before winning 16 of their last 17 to claim the Class AAAAA crown. In the 2015-16 season they dropped five straight games in December before blitzing to another state title.

This year’s 0-3 start? No
