Why are only losses being reported? Ayala’s Girls Basketball best of the west tourney, Ayala went 2-2. Wins against South Hills 57-31, Citrus 67-54. Out of 12 teams, Ayala battled for 4th place againts Rancho and lost. Why is reporter only reporting negativity against the girls’s basketball team. I hope being bias because of friendship with prior coach. Not fair to the girls!
