SANTANA 58, EL CAJON VALLEY 55 – The Santana Sultans outlasted the El Cajon Valley Braves in a Grossmont Valley league contest in Santee on Tuesday night, improving to 2-0 on the young league season.

ANDREW HITCHCOCK had 21 points and NICK BERHALTER added 13 points as the Sultans improved to 12-0 at home this season.

Although the Sultans appear to be in the fight for a league crown, no slip-ups are allowed against teams they are supposed the defeat. Santana sits precariously inside the SDCIF Division 3 playoff bubble.

Grossmont (10-10, 1-2 GHL) will host first-place Granite Hills (13-5, 3-0 GHL) on Friday at 7 p.m.
