Freshman Lexi Mead Nails 3 Three-Pointers & Scores 21 points to Lead the Bronco Attack
“This was a really good early season test for us. Mission Hills is always one of the best teams in San Diego Section Girls Basketball and a top team in the state of California as well” said Vista Murrieta Head Coach Kurt Ruth, “ A comeback win like this should only give our team more confidence. It was a hard-fought, down to the wire type of game, and that is exactly what we expected going into it”.

“We don’t have long to celebrate though because we face a good Cathedral Catholic team in our next game” said Coach Ruth. “It should be another good one as we head out on the road for the first time this season”.
