SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - The juggernaut Washington Panthers completed a perfect regular season on Saturday!

With their win over La Lumiere, the Panthers are now 23-0 on the season as they head into Sectionals on Tuesday night against Mishawaka.

Their overall win streak, stretching back to last season, now sits at 30 games.

“I realized how good we were in December and of course we were still undefeated and I remember making a conscience decision not to make it a goal, not to you know even think about it,” said Steve Reynolds Jr., the head coach. “At the end of the day, we just wanted to compete at the 4A level and get to a state championship, you know? But the girls started talking about so I kinda had my ear and one day they just kind of said it. We want to go undefeated.”

“It wasn’t really talked about until we started winning a lot of games,” said Monique Mitchell, a forward on the team. “It was an expectation we set for ourself so as a team, we all was like we just want to go undefeated, even after winning so many games.”

Washington is one of the favorites to win the Class 4A state championship this year. The Panthers moved up from Class 3A after winning the state title last season..
