Thirty years ago, on December 11, 1980, Manteca High’s quickness overcame East Union High’s strength as MHS blitzed the Lancers 67-53 and captured the consolation prize of the Turlock tournament. Reno Cook wound up as the game’s scoring leader with seven buckets from the floor and a five-for-five performance from the free throw line for 19 points. Besides Cook, Mike Delmanowski and Craig Conaway both wound up in double figures with 10 points apiece. No one on the Lancer squad broke the double figure mark as Keith Windham and Ted McDonald led EU with nine apiece.
