JULIAN (1-29-17) — Snow, apple pie and basketball. That’s what the El Cajon Valley Braves found when they traveled to Julian on Saturday (Jan. 28) for a non-league game with the Eagles.

“We had a good time playing in the snow before the game – most of the girls had never seen snow,” said Braves coach CARLOS MOSS, who confessed to bringing home an apple pie as well as a 57-51 victory over Julian.

There are a couple of bottom lines in this one.

Junior LEANNA WATSON, who went to the free throw line 31 times, scored a game-high 37 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, dished 6 assists and made 7 steals.

“Leanna Watson went to the free throw line 31 times,” Moss said. “She tied a school record of 31 free throw attempts in a game.”

The San Diego Section record for most free throws made in a game is 31, set by Grossmont’s JACLYN GOLDBARG in 2004.

Freshman VEAN GORGEES scored 9 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, dished 2 assists and made one steal.

SUMAYA HAMEED had 9 rebounds to go with 5 points.

El Cajon Valley: Leanna Watson 37 (7 reb, 6 ast, 7 stl), Vean Gorgees 9 (10 reb, 2 ast, 1 stl), Sumaya Hameed 5 (9 reb), Lillian Akintende 4 (4 reb, 3 ast, 5 stl), Erica Bazile (7 reb, 2 stl), Rania Noori (4 reb, 3 ast).
