Girls’ basketball falls in CCS semifinals to Valley Christian

March 15, 2010 — by Apeksha Sharma

While the Falcons may have lost their CCS semi-final game against Valley Christian High School on Feb. 27, they did accomplish something else. The 62-42 loss marked the furthest any Saratoga High girls’ basketball team has made it in the CCS playoffs.

“I’m happy with our team’s performance,” said junior Arya Parhar. “Even though we lost, this is the farthest any SHS girls basketball team has ever gone.”
In order to make it this far, the team beat Prospect High School 44-34 on the road Feb. 25 and Seaside High School 52-45 at home on Feb. 23.
“We played great games in CCS, and we managed to stay in the lead throughout the tournament,” said Parhar.
Senior Nicole Gragnola continued to be a power house in the tournament as she led the team with 19 points against Prospect and 22 points against Seaside. Other key players included senior Baylee Yates and sophomore Shriya Nagpal, who played tough defense and made many steals throughout the tournament.
