Calfornia Middle School eighth grade girls finish season with only one loss

January 31st, 2012 in News

The California Middle School eighth grade girls basketball team wrapped up the 2011-12 season Thursday with a 56-13 win at home against Osage and only one loss.

California led 18-6 after the first quarter, 32-6 at the half and 49-11 after three quarters, then outscored Osage 7-2 in the final frame to take the win.

"The girls played as a team and played well," California Coach Jennifer Porter said. "This group of girls works really well together. They are never selfish when it comes to passing or shooting; they always find the open teammate who has the better shot."
