Luu Nabs All-League


Being a freshman starter in the competitive Trans-Valley League did little to hinder Janelle Luu's production or recognition in a long girls basketball season at Riverbank High.

Luu found the net often, despite double and triple teams near the basket in TVL action. She led Riverbank in scoring, and was the lone Lady Bruin to nab First Team All League recognition from the conference at Saturday's meeting between league coaches.

Her younger sister, Cardozo Middle School star Olivia Luu, will likely join Janelle at the varsity level for the 2011-12 Lady Bruin season.
