  • Lobo Love??

    Fred,

    Did you really highlight Amat’s tournament loss over Workman’s tournament championship??? The Lady Lobos have been in the Championship game in their first two tournaments this year, winning last night against the host La Habra and narrowly losing against State/CIF champs St. Anthony in their tournament two weeks ago. They are 7-1 to start the year…… Where is the Lobo love????
