From the start, McNary High School’s girls varsity basketball team knew it was going to be a tough week.
With games against the top two teams in the Central Valley Conference in the span of four days, the girls were facing a tall order and both ended in losses breaking, a three-win streak.
First up were the Titans Tuesday, Jan. 22. West Salem drowned out the Celts on offense as they leapt out to a 17-4 lead in the first quarter.
“We played hard in the first half, but we didn’t make a lot of our shots. The shots got better in the second half and we played really hard, but it just didn’t really work out,” said Celt Madie Hingston.
McNary was down 10 points with 6:30 left in the game.
