Tracy 55, Mountain House 29

The Bulldogs came out with a relentless offense in Tracy’s 55-29 win over Mountain House on Monday at Tracy High.

The outcome puts the Mustangs at 4-4, and Tracy is 7-4. Tracy coach Derek Eaton is in his first year coaching the varsity team, but he has worked with most of the players before.

“The eight seniors that I have, I had them JV season 2 years ago and it’s a group of girls. Very smart and intelligent. I think we’ve got a little ways to go, as far as coming together and executing plays properly, but the team camaraderie and the way they play together and stay together is definitely going to carry us this season,” he said.
