Any athlete will tell you . . . it's not how you start, it's how you finish.  And THIS is how you finish.  The Daviess County High School Pantherettes performed Friday night at the 9th District Basketball Championship and their routine started out like all the others.  But then, for some reason, their music abruptly stopped.  But the team didn't.  And they did not miss a single beat or step and the crowd went wild!  This is friggin' awesome!

The DCHS Pantherettes, two weekends ago, won two state championships at the KDCO High School Dance Team Championship in Frankfort.  They brought home state pom and hip hop titles.  On Wednesday, they'll be flying out to Orlando to compete in Nationals.  If this video is any indication, they will be in it to win it.

The team is six seniors strong this year and those seniors (and the rest of the team) are looking to end the season with an amazing showing in Florida.  And those seniors, who have put in four years of intense choreography, conditioning, practice and competition, know that it truly is not how you start your career as a Pantherette . . . it's how you finish!
