Heartbreaking season ends for women’s basketball

After a difficult season, City College’s women’s basketball team played their final home game on Feb. 10 and were defeated by Imperial Valley 46-69.

The game was a special night for both teams because it represented something more. It was played for awareness and funds for cancer research in which all proceeds from the game went to The Kay Yow Cancer Fund.

The Lady Knights donned pink socks and pink shoelaces and were determined to add another win to their record. Despite being outnumbered, they managed to trail not far behind and were even tied at one point in the game.

According to Coach Brian Lupian, the team played “with the mind-set of going out at home,” but it was not enough to improve their overall record of 1-21.

According to freshman guard Priscilla Contreras, motivation  is what keeps the team going after 21 losses.
