The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito is an organization dedicated to providing POSITIVE activities to develop the education, health, self-esteem and character of youth – so a meeting with the UCSD Women’s basketball team this weekend met with everyone’s expectations!

Girls from the Boys and Girls Club in Carmel Valley played a scrimmage at halftime during the UCSD Triton Women’s basketball game recently.  UCSD was playing in its final home game and dominated conference rival Sonoma State.  After the game the women’s basketball team met with girls from the Boys & Girls Club to talk about their experiences as scholar athletes and answer questions.  Several of the questions related to managing busy schedules and balancing school with multiple sports.  Tritons encouraged the girls to play many sports citing that one of the players didn’t start basketball until she was in high school!  The Triton’s signed posters and T-shirts and seemed equally excited to have a new group of fans.  Good luck to the Triton’s as they head in to conference championship play!
