But it wasn’t all on the shoulders on the sophomore, who was recognized for her strong statistical performance of late, although she was dominant. 

El Capitan also got 10 points from sophomore center EMMA DRISKILL, who returned to the floor.

“We had a good team win tonight because everybody did their job,” El Capitan head coach DARIN CURTIS said. “It was nice having Emma back, she is what our team is all about, the commitment to each other.

“Her and Stephanie had the job of stopping their best player (holding her to half her season scoring average).”

Juniors JORDAN GRANDY and DEVON BULLOCK also added 10 points for the Vaqueros. For Bullock, it was a career-high.
