Cate Girls Hang On for Victory Against Villanova Prep

Cate opened up an 18-point lead against Villanova Prep, fought off fatigue in the fourth quarter and held on for a 40-36 Frontier League girls basketball victory on Saturday.

Lily Zanze scored 14 points and made some clutch free throws down the stretch to secure the victory for the Rams, who were playing for the second straight day after not having a game for more than a month because of the Thomas Fire and flooding near the Cate campus.

"Lily Zanze played a great game, leading the press break, looking for her offense, and doing a much better job rebounding,"  Cate coach Amy Venditta said. "Lily also made the last few free throws at a very stressful point at the end of the game."

Piper Brooks added eight points for the Rams (1-1 in league).

Cate plays its next game on Tuesday at home against Malibu.

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!
