Even before the season began, the Olympic Conference National Division seem to have several teams who could be ranked as a top team in South Jersey. Camden would be one of those teams in a rebuilding phase and would have to find a way to step up and compete with the other teams from their division. Camden Catholic would begin their game against the Lady Panthers quick and fast and control this game up until the very end. When the final buzzer was sounded, the Irish would walk off the court with an 83-34 victory at home.
During the month of December, the Panthers would start out their season with a 2-2 record but were looking to end a two game losing streak at Camden Catholic. With defending champs Woodrow Wilson and Bishop Eustace having success racking up wins so far this season, every game was an important one to win. Both of these teams were looking to start off the year with a good effort on the court. Rashidat Junaid and Christine Matera showed off their skills against Camden by scoring 20 points apiece and outscore the Panthers by themselves. Allison Lane would add 10 points for Camden Catholic when Dawn Hilliard would lead Camden in scoring with 15 points.
