The 2012-2013 season was a good one for the Malvern Lady Leopards basketball team.
Not only did they win the 4A state championship with a record of 32-2, they were virtually unstoppable the rest of the season as well, picking up win after win and tournament title after tournament title.
Some of the accolades that came the Lady Leopardsâ€™ way during the season included being the champions of the Spa City Shootout, 7-4A Conference champion, district champion and regional champion.
Individual Lady Leopards also were also recognized for their play during the year.
All my life I have been a huge basketball fan (Arkansas for most of that time), but I have always had a core group of teams that I absolutely despised.
It didnâ€™t matter who these teams were playing, I always rooted for their opponent (unless of course it was one of my other hated teams).
But once I started to think about it, I noticed that all of the teams I had a grudge against had something in common â€” aside from being the perennial â€śsuper teamsâ€ť â€” the primary color for each of these schools was blue.
