The seniors honored included Claire Nelson, Tory Thompson, Addy Welch, Claire Felker and Manager Peyton Owens. Two nights later, the Lady Panthers traveled to Mountain View and left with a 3-1 victory over a 20-win Liberty squad. After falling in the first set, 25-21, the Lady Panthers rallied to win the final three sets, 25-23, 26-24 and 25-16. Mountain Grove is the No. 1 seed in the Class 3, District 10 Tournament that they host this week.
