From the sideline: TJHS junior Alisha Saucedo has been a huge part of the Raiders’ success so far this year. As one of the captains, she shows the leadership that is required on and off the court. She is the varsity girls basketball team’s No. 1 defender in the system. She has had success in the early stages of the season with an average of 10 points, 4.3 rebounds and two steals a game. This shows how valuable she is to our continued push for the post season playoffs.
