LATHROP – Erica Sanchez netted 16 points and Jasmine Elder added 12 Saturday at Lathrop High, but it wouldn’t be enough, as the Manteca sophomore girls basketball team feasted in the paint and pulled out a 55-41 win.
“Manteca was a lot bigger than us and they were able to get it inside,” Lathrop head coach Ed Fang said. “We couldn’t defend the post all day. (Manteca) played well.”
Up next for the Spartans (6-7 Valley Oak League, 10-13 overall) will be a trip to Central Valley Monday.
Tip is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
