The Tartans picked up an important road win against Orange High School Thursday night, downing the Panthers 72-39.
Taylor Francois had 25 points with 5 assists, 5 rebounds and 6 steals, while Harper Gideons contributed 13 points, 4 assists and 4 steals to keep Orange on the back foot all evening. Sophia Gazzaniga had 15 points and 11 rebounds in the win.
"Our group has shown a lot of resilience in the past 2-3 weeks. Christmas break provided us an opportunity to play five big games against really solid programs," said head coach Josh Markum. "We have been able to produce a lot of success despite an injury and illness-plagued roster. Ultimately, that experience has made us better and more well-rounded."
The now-healthy Tartans (No. 21 in Orange County) look to take on No. 22 Dana Hills High School on Saturday, Jan. 6. St. Margaret's defeated the Dolphins 52-49 at their last meeting in the Pacifica Tournament on Dec. 9.

St. Margaret's shut out the Panthers 2-0 Thursday, improving the Tartans' league record to 3-3.
Emma Tomlinson opened the scoring for the Tartans on a perfectly timed run, connecting with an Ava Gardner corner and volleying it in the back of the net. Gardner followed up the assist, slotting home a goal to put the Tartans up 2-0. Goalkeeper Riley Long anchored the defense and notched a well-deserved clean sheet.
"It was great to provide every player with valuable minutes on the field, allowing them to gain experience," said head coach Jenny Anderson-Hammond. "We are now looking forward to facing our opponents once again in the second round of the league."
The Tartans will travel to face Costa Mesa on Jan. 11 at 5 p.m.
