DeKalb County High School basketball MVP Hanah Panter will be trading one Lady Tiger team for another next season.


The Lady Tiger 2017 basketball MVP has signed to play for Chattanooga State Community College. Panter said that the move would allow her to continue playing the sport she loves while getting an education in her desired field.


“I want to continue to play basketball, and this is a great opportunity,” Panter said at the signing ceremony, held Friday at DCHS. “I love the campus. I want to be a nurse or a physical therapist, and they offer both of those, so that’s very good.”


Lady Tiger Head Coach Danny Fish said that he was pleased for Panter.


“Hanah is a good player, great kid, and a great student and she really improved for us this year throughout the season,” Fish said. “She has really matured into a nice kid and nice player. She shot the ball really well and led us in scoring. She is going to do well at Chattanooga State. Hanah is very athletic. She can defend and shoots the three ball very well. Hanah went down to Chattanooga State for a workout and they really liked her. I am very happy for Hanah. She worked very hard for us.”


Members of Panter’s family, teammates, and coaches joined her for the signing.
