The Winters High School junior varsity basketball team traveled to the historic poultry capital of California, Petaluma. There the Warriors played in a non-conference game against St. Vincent De Paul. The Warriors spent part of the first quarter redefining themselves after the return of Memo Valadez from his recuperation from injury. After their quick stumble they won 52-36, and now they have a six game winning streak. “Memo Valadez had a great game in his first game back since a 12/14 injury. He’s a shot maker and you can see the other guys looking to get him open shots,” said Coach Jon Davis. Davis went on to say, “(David Reyes) had another great game. He shot great, but I was more impressed with his passing and court vision. He keeps getting better every week at limiting turnovers and making plays for his teammates.” Reyes continued his leadership role that he assumed earlier in the year. He led the scoring with 20 points, and Valadez followed that up with 10 points. Kadin Pease, Diego Valencia, Yahir Sanchez, and Carson Lowrie all contributed to the score with 22 points among the four of them. Davis stated, “It wasn’t our prettiest win, but I was impressed with our effort in the second half, especially our defense. St Vincent only had one field goal in the fourth quarter and a couple free throws.” The next game for the team will be on Saturday, Jan. 5, at Find a Cure Night. Their game will start at 4:30 pm.]]>
