Panthers At A Glance

Petal (population 10,454) reached the Class 6A Sweet 16 in head coach Todd Kimball’s first year with the program, losing only to state powers Meridian (three times) and Biloxi (twice) during the regular season. There’s plenty of firepower back, too, led by a pair of athletic 6-5 JR forwards, Treylan Smith (15.1 ppg, 7.1 rpg) – a slasher who erupted for 29 points in a win over rival Oak Grove – Caleb McGill (15.7 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and 6-2 SR guard Don Avilla.
