Trujillo tallied 21 points off seven two-pointers, two three-pointers and a free throw. Paige Reed was the next top scorer with eight points. Chester's team is one of the youngest out there, with only one senior. Chester started the game against Los Molinos with the lead, but was outscored a brutal 21-2 in the second quarter. The Volcanoes never recovered from that blow, losing the game. Greenville The Lady Indians faced two teams last week, and fell to both. Greenville lost 51-18 to Quincy on Jan. 8. Two days later, the Indians fell 54-10 to Loyalton. Despite the losses, there were some silver linings in the games. Shasta Banchio scored 10 of her team's 18 points against Quincy. "Shasta had a great game," said Greenville's assistant coach, Casey Peters. "She's just a freshman but is definitely playing at a varsity level. She has a lot of potential and it will be fun to see her game develop." Loyalton had control of the game from the start to the end Jan. 10. At one point, Greenville was down 40-2. The Indians never gave up, however, and made two two-pointers and a three-pointer to lessen Loyalton's lead to 40-9. Loyalton kept playing its hardest to eventually win. Quincy The day before Quincy beat Greenville, it lost 61-42 to Loyalton. The Trojans stayed pretty competitive through the first half and were even up 28-26. Loyalton Chester's Reanna Trujillo takes the shot during Chester's 42-36 win against Liberty Christian on Jan. 6. Trujillo scored half of her team's points that game.

"We got tired and gave it away." Jasmin Sherman was Quincy's top scorer in the win against Greenville. Sherman scored 15 points to put the Trojans ahead. Portola Portola was the only team to have only one game last week. The Tigers hosted Incline on Jan. 7, only to lose 62-43. Incline kept a lead throughout the game.
