The third game was on Saturday against Tarkanian, and the Sharks lost 43 to 24. Avena and Gomez were the team’s high scorers again, Avena made eight and Gomez scored five.

The fourth game was a win. The Sharks beat Burkholder with a final score of 36 to 28. The high scorers were Avena with 13 and Hollis with seven.

The fifth game was another loss. This time the team played Webb Middle School. The final score was 52 to 15. The high scorers were Hollis with five, and Jacob Lopez and Andrew Avena tied with four apiece.
