As the season starts to wind down for the Winters High School JV girls basketball team they continue to work hard and improve.
Last week, the Warriors lost both of their games but came close to defeating the Colusa RedHawks on Tuesday, Jan. 30 on the road.
After suffering a slow start, Winters came back from a 13-4 deficit and closed the gap to 19-14 at the end of the third before losing 23-20.
“We were much better than the previous week,” said coach Tom Crisp. “Regardsless of our game scores, the girls continue to work on trying to get better.
We were down early, but the players kept battling. We were actually ahead 20-19 with about two minutes to go.
It was a great learning experience for the girls to be in a close game.”
Maggie McCrary led the team with 7 points. Annie Ramos and Aide Aguilera each scored 4 points. Xiomara Guzman scored 3 points and Autumn Mendoza scored 2 points.
Winters hosted Willows on Thursday, Feb. 1, and lost 42-21 to the Honkers.
“Against Willows we did a much better job handling their half court press than we did in our first game against them,” Crisp stated.
Ramos led the team in scoring with 5 points. Guzman, Mendoza, Aide and Yolanda Covarrubias each scored 3 points. Audrey Saechao and McCrary each scored 2 points.
