The Galt Warriors varsity girls basketball team pulled off the home upset against their crosstown rivals, the Liberty Ranch Hawks, winning 46-45 Thursday. It was the Warriors’ first league win since Jan. 13 of 2012 against Vista del Lago.
Gianna Stellato scored 17 points for Galt (5-17, 1-6 Sierra Valley Conference). Shantanice Mendoza hit a tying 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter, then made one of two free throws for the winning points after getting fouled in the final seconds. RaAnne Naea blocked the Hawks’ final shot as time expired.
