Gavilan, CA – The women’s basketball team got back on the winning track last night after coming away with a 59-42 win over Hartnell College in the first game of Coast Conference play.

The Rams got off to a cold start trailing by 10 points after the first quarter. The Rams cut the lead in half going into halftime, by a score of 30-25.  Coming out of the locker room the Gavilan defense took control of the game allowing only 12 points to be scored by the Panthers in the entire second half. Meanwhile the Rams offense got going putting up 34 second half points.

It was a group effort scoring wise for the Rams but it was McKinzie Lothrop with 13 and Mireya Hernandez’s 11, both coming off the bench to lead the way. Makenzie Barnes had 9 to lead the starting five. Lothrop and Evelyn Rios both had 8 rebounds with Jillian Foster had 7 rebound to go with her 6 points.
