On the Prowl 🐈⬛
Panther City ended the 2021-2022 season with a 7-11 record, finishing just shy of the playoffs in the National Lacrosse League (NLL). The team is represented by the intimidating Prowler mascot, but the unofficial mascot is a bit more cuddly than the name might suggest.
Nicknamed Lil’ Prowl, the team has embraced a little cartoon panther that was drawn as a spoof on a Carolina Panther’s video last year. Now Lil’ Prowl sneaks up on the team’s social media accounts — and apparently, head coach Tracey “TK” Kelusky’s arm. (We guess it’s warranted if you’re named the NLL Coach of the Year after the team’s inaugural season.)
No lone panthers here 🎟
Welcome new cubs 🍻
There are a few new faces to the 21-player roster this year. Keep an eye out for Jonathan Donville — a lefty forward, member of the Maryland’s D1 National Champion team, and the first pick of the 2021-2022 NLL Entry Draft.
So we’ll see you tonight, yeah? Your reward for being a true Panther City LAX fan — and for reading to the end of this article — is a free beer. Coach TK is giving away free beverages to the first 500 fans tonight.
