The JV Girls Basketball team played Monday night against St. Joseph. “After an extra practice on Saturday night it kinda helped us win the game because we went over plays.” said Ashley Magday. Not only did Magday think an extra practice helped, but Azlyn Fitzwater, the starting point guard, also believed that an extra practice helped because “that day was about going over plays. It was still fresh in our minds.”

Tuesday afternoon JV had another game against Mission Prep at San Luis Obispo. “In the first half the team was doing good. In the second half we slowed down. Defense was slower and offense was to fast.” said Fitzwater. The final score of the game was 24-18. That loss makes their record for preseason 1-3.
