ANDERSON, Mo. — St. Mary’s-Colgan girls’ basketball head coach Abby Farabi notched the 100th win of her career on Tuesday after the Panthers took down McDonald County 61-48.

“I’m very humbled and thankful for the opportunity to coach all of these girls,” Farabi said. “Over the years, they’ve taught me so much about life and other things more important than wins and losses. I’m blessed with great mentors and a supporting family that’s always there for me and provides me with the opportunity to do what I love. More importantly, however, I’m happy for these girls. They’ve had a lot of success this season and will continue see good things happen down the road. Each player becomes apart of you and they mean so much to me. There’s still many more accomplishments yet to achieve.”

In the win, Cathy Farmer led the way with 19 points and six rebounds.

Her teammate Kate Radell came in close behind with 14 points and six rebounds.

“I thought that we played really well as a team,” Farabi said. “I thought we did a better job of attacking and being assertive. We shot the ball well and we were confident in our looks. I thought our inside combo was extremely effective, especially late in the game.”


The Panthers will be in Girard at 6 p.m. on Friday.
