Basketball teams that shoot 11 of 31 at the free-throw line don’t typically win, but the Skyline High School girls managed to do it during their most recent outing.
In the championship game of the Emerald Division at the West Coast Jamboree in Dublin, Calif., Skyline shot 35 percent at the charity stripe. Yet the Spartans managed to outlast host Valley Christian, 57-54, on Dec. 30.
The Spartans (6-3 overall) built a 45-35 lead after three quarters, but had to fend off a late challenge from a Valley Christian team sporting a 9-0 record and playing in front of its home fans.
