Ceres High and Denair faced off in girls basketball on Tuesday, June 28.

The Bulldogs won the CHS summer league contest, 38-24, at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.

"We did good but we could have done a lot better," Ceres High junior post player Breanna Freitas said.

Added Bulldogs head coach Vanessa Morris: "I've seen a lot of improvement."

Freitas collected a team-high 11 points.

Bryce Ford, Ashton Frampton and Dia Borden tallied eight, six and five points, respectively.

Laura Story and Farrah Wyatt both scored four points.

"It makes me feel wonderful knowing I'm good at something," Freitas said. "This is my passion. I'm in way better shape now. I'm not running out of breath as much. I can move faster. I don't feel like a turtle."

Said Morris: "The sky's the limit for her."

Denair challenged Ceres High in the early going.

The Bulldogs accounted for 25 of the game's final 32 points.

Ceres High outscored Denair 12-0 during the closing five minutes of the opening half.

Ceres High held a 13-7 advantage in scoring after intermission.

"Our coach gave us a pep talk and told us not to give up," Freitas said.

"We just started making better passes and talking to each other on defense," Morris said. "We have a lot of smart kids on our team. I'm hard on my players but I'm energetic and still teaching at the same time."
