Wilmot Union High School students converge onto the court with the basketball team, which won the regional title at Burlington (Rick Benavides/The Report).
As the Wilmot Union High School community rallied around the underdog boys basketball team, which featured Latrell Glass and his record-setting season, there were other notable highlights.
Those notable highlights include junior Emmett Matthews, who received Southern Lakes Conference Male Athlete of the Year for the Badger co-op swim team, and a regional title in girls basketball.
Additionally, the Wilmot Cheerleading team had two all-state cheerleaders, Rachel Kostrova and Savannah Meyers, both of whom received the honor for the second straight year.
The following are some photos from the Panthers’ winter sports season.
