The Knoxville boys are back in the gym working on improving as a team during the holiday break. The Panthers stand at 1-6 on the season. Coach Brad McWilliams says during a stretch earlier in December they had very little practice time. McWilliams says the extended break has given him a chance to evaluate the team and make the necessary improvements. Knoxville will practice the rest of this week in preparion for Tuesday night’s contest at Pella.
