Coming into this season, the 8th Grade Girls Lady Cardinal Basketball Team knew they had a lot to prove. After a 9-1 record last year as 7th graders, everyone expected them to have another winning season.
And that’s exactly what they did.
With seven returning players from last year, the Lady Cards, led by point guard Robbie Sue Espericueta, ended this season with a 13-1 overall record (10-0 in district play), only losing in the championship game of the Monte Alto Tournament.
With help from power forward Savannah Rubalcaba and defensive beasts Julissa Lopez and Hailey Garza, Espericueta and the Lady Cardinals proved to be a force to be reckoned with all season long. They finished the season as District Champions and are more than ready to embark on a new journey in the world of high school basketball.
