WARRENSBURG, Mo. — The California Pintos girls basketball team competed at their jamboree Nov. 13 at Warrensburg. The team played in two six-minute quarter sessions, where they did not keep score against Marshall and Knob Noster.

Head coach Bobby Sangster said he felt the team gained some information about themselves.

"I felt like we gained valuable information about what we need to work on as a group going into the start of the season," Sangster said.

Sangster said he loved the energy the team had at the jamboree.

"We were unselfish and cheered for one another the entire night," Sangster said. "We moved the ball well on offense, leading to some good shots."

"I thought we had positives and negatives from all the girls," Sangster said. "Everyone stood out in their own way, everyone has things they need to work on."

Defense and rebounding are some things Sangster said the team has to do better at after the jamboree.

The team took away some information about themselves from the jamboree.

"We are a young team with room to grow," Sangster said. "I think we understand how valuable our time is together and we need to improve every time we take the court."
