Dec 11 – Freshman Girls Basketball Win Exciting Game
The Dons freshman girls basketball team hosted St. Francis of Mountain View on Tuesday in a terrific game. The Dons were down by as much as 7 points in the second half but never gave up. They played great defense down the stretch and a key basket by Carly Porep from the corner rallied the team to an exciting 41-40 win. The St. Francis team had good shooters and had the final possession. A blocked shot by Josie Curless and a key rebound by Sophie Ross of a missed shot secured the victory.
“I am really proud of the way the team played today,” said coach Chad Wellon. “They played strong defense and really worked well as a team. We are improving every game”.
The freshman Dons are now 8-4 on the season and play at San Ramon Valley this Thursday at 4 pm.
