LOS ALTOS, Calif. — Coach Nancy Moyer, who has experienced much better times at Pinewood School, saw her new, young varsity basketball team open the season with a 101-1 loss.
"This is going to be a building year," Moyer said Friday.
She knew that even before her small-school team took the court Thursday night against San Mateo High School in an opening-round game of a tournament at nearby Menlo Park.
"The girls worked hard all the way to the end," Moyer said. "They're ready to learn. You can't ask for anything more--except talent."
As for herself, Moyer said, "It's real unfortunate that he (the San Mateo coach) ran up the score. But I never got angry.
