Congratulations to the boys and girls basketball teams for their wins over Santa Cruz tonight. The girls won 59-53 and the boys won 45-37. The girls were led by the hot shooting of Chloe Deleissegues, Janiya Sevilla and Janessa Yniguez. Alyssa Soto and Megan Kelly a pair of seniors led the way on defense. The game was close all the way and it wasn't until the final minute that the Sharks pulled away for the win.
The boys found themselves up 35-21 and then Santa Cruz stormed back to cut the lead to 4 before some Chase Watkins and Jason Gallo free throws put the game on ice. The highlight of the night was a full court pass from Sandor Rodriguez to Chase Watkins for a dunk. Dominic Figueroa poured in some 3 pointers and Ruben Ibarra's defense help lead the team to victory.
The Sharks take the court next on Wednesday at Soquel with the girls tipping off at 5:30 pm and the boys at 7 pm. Go Sharks!
