They shoot, they miss.

After “enjoying the school’s best basketball season since 2012,” according to an email from Athletic Director Denny Lennon, the Panthers lost in the CIF-SS playoff to William Workman High School. The Lobos defeated Archer 29-41, ending the Panther’s season and playoff run.

“[The game] was really challenging,” senior co-captain Cydney Davis said. “We couldn’t really score that well that night — we couldn’t really get on the board.”

Archer did not hold the lead at any point during the game at Santa Monica College on Feb. 17. The Panthers were either losing or the score was tied.

“I started to get really emotional when there were just a few seconds left because I knew that was going to be my last time playing basketball,” Davis said.

Archer finished the season with a 16-12 overall record.

“It was a good experience because I know how hard we worked,” Davis said. “But it was really sad to think that [Archer basketball] was finally over.”
