High School Basketball:
Pitman's Early Success Extends Winning Streak

The Lady Panthers from Pitman coaching staff were having success at putting their players in the right situations to win games. It’s always nice for a team to start out a new season competitively and that’s what Pitman has been doing. Mary Beato and Chayle McFaull has been leading the way in scoring for the Panthers and they would continue helping their team post wins. In their game at home against Overbrook, Pitman jumped out to a double digit lead and never looked back. The Panthers would post a 61-48 victory and extend their winning streak to four games in a row.

Overbrook has started out this season with a 2-2 record and was looking to get back above the five hundred percentage mark with a win at Pitman. Emily Weaver has been that go-to player so far this season and the rest of the players have rallied around her play and have responded. But against the tandem of Beato and McFaull for Pitman, the Lady Rams would have their hands full. The Panthers’ early 21-8 lead gave them a cushion that held up for the rest of the game. The two teams from that point on matched point for point and Pitman would be able to extend their winning streak. Mary Beato finished with a game high 27 points while Chayle McFaull added 15 points for the Panthers. Emily Weaver led Overbrook with 18 points.
