The Lady Vaqs hosted the Vaquero Shootout Friday through Sunday, where eight teams competed to place first, second and third.
Glendale finished fourth on Sunday, when it lost to Santa Ana College, 62-61, on a last-second foul against Glendale.

The Lady Vaqs beat El Camino College 55-51 on Friday to advance to the championship semi-finals on Saturday, where they faced Fullerton College, and lost 69-42.

Even with a fourth-place finish, head Coach Monica Hang feels good about the season.
“We look good,” said Hang. “We’re playing great teams. Fullerton is probably going to be top going to state and Santa Ana is above average.”

Lady Vaqs guard Chelsea Baqueiro received the All-Tourney Player award for being one of the outstanding players in the tournament.
Hang commented on next week’s game and said, “We’re going to work on making better shots, being ready from the get-go, making better decisions, taking care of the ball and that’s it.”

The Lady Vaqs will compete in the Santa Ana/Orange Coast College Tournament Friday and Saturday.
