Los Altos High senior point guard Alyssa Cortinas drives to the basket in Friday night’s game against Monta Vista. She scored a team-high 12 points in the Eagles’ league-opening win.
After its double-digit lead dwindled to four points late in the fourth quarter, the Los Altos High girls basketball team put Friday’s game away with an off-script shot that Anjali Nand turned into a four-point play.
“We were trying to use clock, so that wasn’t necessarily drawn up or wanted. That’s one of those ‘No, no, no, no, yes’ plays,” coach Jaclyn Brode said after the Eagles’ 41-37 league-opening win over Monta Vista. “But Anjali is a shooter, and tonight she was able to shoot when she was in rhythm and good things happened for her.”
