Pitman High's varsity girls basketball team solidified their second place spot, for now, in the Central California Conference after an exciting turn of events that occurred on Thursday night in Atwater.
The Pitman (13-6 overall, 4-2 CCC) High girls basketball team had an opportunity to redeem their loss to Golden Valley (19-4 overall, 6-0 CCC) from earlier in the year but things didn't pan out the way they expected.
Turlock (6-16 overall, 5-0 CCC) head coach Doug Cornfoot had been patiently waiting for a return of the defensive brand of basketball that was the Bulldogs' calling card and on Friday night they brought it, erasing all doubt about their preseason woes with a big home win over Pitman (11-7 overall, 4-1 CCC) High.
It was a tale of two halves on Monday night when the Turlock Christian girls basketball team hosted Elliot Christian High for a Central California Athletic Alliance showdown that ended well for the Eagles.
The Pitman Pride and Merced Bears matched up for their third game in the Central California Conference in Pitman's house on Friday night, where the Pride (10-7 overall, 3-0 CCC) were able to extend their winning streak with an exciting finish.
