Lemoore’s varsity girls’ basketball team already has a win under its belt. The Tigers beat Bret Hart in the Sonora Tournament on Dec. 3 68-33, but lost to Del Oro 56-41 in their second contest to open the year at .500.

Lemoore’s next action comes Tuesday (Dec. 8) against Tulare Union before entering the Holiday Invitational Tournament which begins Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Coach Miguel Macias will have a number of starters returning from last year, including All-WYL players Jazmine Taylor, Katelyn Cole and Bobbie Henry. The trio was named to the league’s second team.
