San Perlita’s Victor Galvan has Trojans on a roll

The train continues to roll for the San Perlita boys basketball team. The Trojans are now 5-0 in District 32-2A play after a big 93-60 win over Lasara on Thursday night.

San Perlita has gotten strong play from senior guard Victor Galvan. Last week he posted 14 points against La Villa and 21 in a win against San Isidro.

With the strong performances, Galvan was named the boys Valley Morning Star’s Player of the Week.

“These past two games have been very intense,” Galvan said. “We as a team entered district play feeling good. We had played some tough teams in non-district so we felt confident. The San Isidro game was tough because they made comebacks against us. I knew we had to make adjustments and limit our turnovers, and I had to be more aggressive. After I hit a three pointer to tie the game, we kept up our intensity for the rest of the game.”

On the season, Galvan is averaging 17.5 points per game and Trojans head coach Nataniel Garza is pleased with Galvan’s performance.

“Victor is a humble and hardworking young man,” Garza said. “He always puts the team before himself, he has been a big part of our team and is a great leader.”
