Today was a much needed day of rest and relaxation! Many students took advantage of the time and slept to prepare for their first game tonight!
After a pre-game meal, the Eagles were ready to get out on the court. The girls played San Pasquel Academy and scored well, defeating them: 43 -14. Their defensive game was a lesson in preexistence and style excellent and Rosalie Pozo was TMA’s top scorer.
