Central Valley High School's freshman girls basketball team defeated visiting Ceres High 41-24 on Jan. 22.

The Hawks earned a crosstown sweep of the Bulldogs with a 33-19 road win on Thursday.

"I was concerned," Central Valley player Trinity Avila said. "We're much more nervous playing Ceres High because we're rivals. We have pressure put on us by our peers to win."

The first-place Hawks improved to 18-1 on the year and 11-0 in the Western Athletic Conference.

The Bulldogs dropped to 14-6 overall and 8-3 in the WAC standings.

"It's amazing," Avila said. "We're going to be the first freshman team at our school to go undefeated."

Central Valley's Elizabeth Robinson totaled 35 points in two games versus Ceres High, including 17 last week.

Samantha Muniz, Trinity Avila and Chetna Kumar collected eight, five and two points, respectively.

Laiza Diaz added one point.

Angelina Ursua scored a team-high eight points for the Bulldogs.

Hannah Kimbro tallied four points.

Andrea Duran and Shelby Veuve chipped in with three points apiece.

Harmen Bahia had one point.

"We did really well today," Veuve said. "We all worked hard. We were aggressive."

Central Valley outscored Ceres High 16-7 during the second half.

"Our intensity increased," said Avila, whose team held a slim 17-12 lead at the break. "We started playing our game. We pushed harder. We pressed harder. We gave it our all."

"We didn't let them score as much in the first half," Veuve said. "In the second half, we were fouling a lot more. We fell apart a little bit. It's always heated when we play each other. It's really personal. It sucks losing."
