Central Valley High School's freshman girls basketball team completed the first half of the Western Athletic Conference season this past week.

The host Hawks improved to 6-0 in the WAC standings following Thursday's 41-24 victory over crosstown-rival Ceres High.

"It's extra special," Central Valley standout Elizabeth Robinson said. "It feels really good because we just beat our rival team. We had a lot of fun."

The Bulldogs dropped to 4-2 in league play.

Central Valley wants to compile a perfect 12-0 record in WAC play.

"That would be awesome," Robinson said. "We're teammates and friends."

Robinson, arguably the top player in the WAC, scored a game-high 18 points versus Ceres High.

Samantha Muniz collected seven points.

Chetna Kumar chipped in with five points.

Trinity Avila and Lajae Riley both contributed four points.

Laiza Diaz had two points.

Angelina Ursua tallied a team-high 12 points for Ceres High.

Harmen Bahia and Shelby Veuve collected five points each.

Carli Gomes had two points.

Central Valley accounted for 12 of the game's first 15 points on its way to building a 20-10 lead in the opening half.

The Hawks outscored the Bulldogs 21-13 in the second half.

"We played as a team and ran our plays like we were supposed to," Robinson said. "I thought it was going to be really competitive. We can get better."
