With the win, the Lady Titans clinched third place in the Rio Hondo League and will host Oxnard on Tuesday evening at 5:00 p.m. in a CIF Division IV wild card playoff game.
“I give the girls all the credit in the world,” said head Coach Mark Barr. “The girls never lost focus and they kept battling. We were able to come back and earn the playoff spot. I am really proud of them.”
