Cuesta wins semi-final at Pre-new Year's Kick-Off

Cuesta Women's Basketball advanced to the title game of its inaugural Pre-New Year's Kick-Off Classic thanks to Point Guard Maya Armenta.  Armenta played every second of the game and the slender, 5-3, freshman, stood out among the crowd in the Cougars 53-52 win over West Hills-Lemoore.  Her 16-foot jumper at the buzzer lifted the Cougars in the title game, but it was her play all game long that set the stage for her heroics.  Armenta led all scorers with 20 points in the contest, but also added a game-high four steals and team-high four assists.  Coach Ron Barba asked Armenta at the start of the tournament to look for her shot more often and she has poured in 36 points the past two games.   The Cougars, 7-4, face Chabot in the title game at 4 PM tomorrow.
