GPHS vs Galveston Ball
Freshman Team:
The freshman team did not play as Galveston Ball didn’t have enough girls to field a team.

Junior Varsity Team:
The JV team dominated with a 43-17 victory over the Tors of Galveston Ball. The JV team suited 15 girls and all 15 participated in the game and contributed to the win. Daphne Bustos was the MVP for the game with her 10 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 steals. Deysy Martinez was the lead scorer with 13 points and she contributed 3 rebounds and a steal.

Varsity Team:
The varsity team managed to hold Galveston Ball to 28 points through the third quarter and held the team to under 50 for the game in a 10-42 loss.

Julie Rojas was the leading scorer with 5 points, Jackie Hidalgo led in steals with 4 and Destiny Morales led on the boards with 6 rebounds.
