Many of the area schools had a good winter sports season. Knoxville was also productive this winter as the Wrestling team made improvements and seems to be on the upswing. Knoxville also continued a streak that maybe several Panther fans have not realized. When the Boys Bowling team qualified for state last month, that was the sixth consecutive sports season that a team from Knoxville has qualified for a state tournament. It started with boys cross country in the fall of 2009, the Panthers also repeated the trip to state in cross country this past fall. The six sports that have made the state tournament in this current span are, the 2009 Boys Cross Country, 2010 Girls Basketball, 2010 Boys Soccer, 2010 Baseball, 2010 Boys Cross Country, and most recently 2011 Boys Bowling.
