Bulletin sports logo

Lathrop’s girls basketball had its best all-around effort of the early season on Thursday, routing Linden 57-24 in the first round of the Delta Queen Classic at Stagg High of Stockton.

Shakara Porter led four Spartans in double figures with 12 points, and Lathrop (5-1) shut out the winless Lions (0-8) in the first quarter for a 13-0 lead.

“We played very well,” Lathrop coach Dwayne Davis said. “Loved our defense. We were aggressive from the start. The difference from the other night when we committed 28 fouls is that we didn’t pick up our first foul until there were 17 seconds left until halftime. We committed seven fouls for the entire game.

“I’m mostly happy with the offense. Everybody shared the ball, and they saw how it created open shots.”

Rianna Delacruz, Marianna Delgado and Tatianna Lowery contributed 10 points apiece. Sierra Adams and Kirat Sidhu each had six.

The Spartans face host Stagg tonight at 8:30 in the semifinals.
