This week saw more success from our Varsity Girls Basketball team as they went on the road on back-to-back nights to post victories. Dublin was once again powered by strong defensive efforts. They traveled to Chabot College and held Hayward to a mere 29 points in a 13-point victory on December 15th, followed by a Thursday matinee at Liberty where they held the Lions to just 35 points and a hard-fought 2-point win that was sealed in the game’s final seconds. Dublin is now 6-1 overall on the season.
