The girls basketball season enters the final week before the Chrotmas holiday and the holiday tournaments start next week. I am looking forward to seeing how these teams fare before they get into their conference schedule in January.  


Ursuline freshmen Jezelle Banks scored a career high 29 points in their 79-67 win over Bonita Vista High (CA) over the weekend.  Banks had a great season last year as an eighth grader and continues to shine in the Raiders first six games this season.


The Conrad Red Wolves are off to a 4-0 start after a pair of wins last week. Junior Eva Walker is averaging 14 points a game to start the season.  They face their toughest test this year when they travel to Saint Mark’s on Tuesday night.
