Camila Casanueva took over the game for the Dos Pueblos girls basketball team, pouring in 30 points to lead the Chargers to a 61-20 win over San Marcos in a Channel League game.

The Chargers were coming off a loss against Buena, and Casanueva did everything she could to get her team back on the winning track. In addition to her scoring, she had eight assists, seven rebounds and five steals in just 25 minutes of action.

"Camila was incredible tonight as she excelled at every facet of the game, scoring 30 points in limited minutes and collecting seven rebounds from the point guard position," said DP coach Phil Sherman.

Holly Barrera had a solid game, scoring 19 points and grabbing a career-best 10 rebounds.

The Chargers (19-2, 3-2) came into the game shorthanded as Kristen Mortimer and Amber Belletti were sidelined with injuries. 

"Samantha Yanes and Maaria Jaakkola filed in nicely for the two," Sherman said. Jaakkola scored 10 points and collected five rebounds.

Sherman was pleased with his team's defense.

 "I would be remiss to not mention the outstanding defense we played tonight, including the girls taking up the slack tonight from not having two of the three leading rebounders not playing in the game," he said.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
