Pac 8 will be fun this year

Updated: January 5, 2017

The Pac 8 will be a fun league to keep an eye on this year. On Tuesday night, many SLO County teams kicked off the new year with league games.


San Luis Obispo hung on to beat Atascadero 55-52. The game was physical both ways — about 30 fouls were called in the first half. SLO’s Lily Svetich was in early foul trouble, but the Tigers maintained a healthy lead until the final frame, when the Greyhounds had a strong comeback bid fall short.

Mission Prep, Righetti, and St. Joseph were also winners on the opening night.

On the boys’ side, Mission Prep, St. Joseph, Atascadero, and Arroyo Grande all won.

Lots of close games and lots of great basketball to be played. League play is in full swing.
