Verdejo scores 20 in 53-48 win over MOHS
A slow start couldn’t stop Monache High School girls basketball in Friday evening’s East Yosemite League matchup against Mission Oak.
Playing at home, the Marauders (3-0 EYL) trailed in the first quarter but outscored the Hawks (1-2 EYL) in the next two to take a lead that carried them to a 53-48 victory.
“They just have so much heart,” MHS head coach Junell Garcia said. “They really want to win. I told them that this season was just kind of for fun. We get a season, let’s be happy with that. You’ve been off for a whole year or more, but they really all want to win in their hearts. So they give it their all. That’s just who they are. I love these girls. They’re awesome.”
Leading Monache in scoring with 20 points was freshman Alisha Verdejo.
