Valley Christian Tournament
The Lady Broncos basketball team lost the first two games last week in the Valley Christian Academy Tournament, falling 75-25 to Santa Ynez and 58-12 to Valley Christian, but came back to win the third game, 40-25, over Cuyama Valley on New Year’s Eve.
Head coach Emilie Foster said that going into the Coast Valley League play this week the team needs to “take better care of the ball and capitalize on each possession. Every time we turn the ball over, or fail to get a shot off, we’re giving up two or three points.”
Coast Union was defeated 51-16 Tuesday, Jan. 6, by Valley Christian. The next home game for the Lady Broncos is 5 p.m. Friday, Jan. 9, against Maricopa.
