Highland was out to prove that they could take their new team and show the Panthers that they could play against one of South Jersey's top teams. Coach Harold Little had a strong season last year for the Tartans and a win would get the 1998 season started on a good note.

But it was Coach Clarence Turners' Panthers who would finally come together in the second half to post an 88-71 victory. Dujuan Wagner ran the floor well and Aaron Stephens drained in 37 points for Camden High School.

Now a new season has started and the team is looking to improve even further and with any luck, win it all. At the start of the season, luck wasn't exactly on their side.

Then came the regular season and their first opponent, Lenape.
