The Ohio University Eastern Lady Panthers are on their way to another great season.  The two-time defending Ohio Regional State Tournament Champions sport a fine 15-5 overall record and are in contention for a fourth regular season conference title in the last five years.

However, according to Head Coach E. J. Schodzinski, the most impressive statistic is the one that the team earned in the classroom.  For the record, the Lady Panthers achieved an average overall grade point average of 3.12 as a team for the fall semester that just ended.  “This is a remarkable accomplishment,” said Schodzinski.  “Our student-athletes compete in the classroom the exact same way that they do on the court and I could not be prouder of them.  They truly are students first and fine representatives of Ohio University and the Eastern Campus."

Union Local’s Alexus Davis and Monroe Central’s Casey Digity led the way and were named to the Dean’s List for their efforts.  To be named to the Dean’s List, a student must earn a minimum 3.5 grade point average on a 4.0 scale and take 16 hours or more during that semester.
