The girls JV and Varsity basketball games both had a home game last Monday, Jan 27. They played the Parlier Panthers which is the Mustang’s second game against them. Unfortunately, the first Varsity game against them wasn't so successful and they ended up losing 34-21. JV did win against them though. Since it was not a league game, it did not count on their wins and losses.
During the last home game against the Orosi Cardinals, multiple girls Varsity players got injured in the second half of the game, including sophomores Erica Hafkey (#32), Melia Kamalani (#24) both got leg injuries and junior Taylyr Moglia (#13) broke her nose. Despite Taylyr being injured, she recovered enough to play. Girls Varsity basketball is down two players for at least the next game. Sophomore Melia Kamalani described how she felt about not being able to play, “It was really unfortunate because I was really looking forward to the season and like for colleges just to add to the stats and I won't be able to do that so I'm pretty sad.”
Be sure to come out and watch JV and Varsity against Caruthers this Friday, Jan. 31.
