HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP : Palmisano Scores 36 in Thousand Oaks Loss

After her standout freshman season of 1989, much was expected of Thousand Oaks High guard Michelle Palmisano. And while she has delivered, sometimes it still has not been enough.

In a Marmonte League game at Thousand Oaks on Saturday night, Palmisano scored a game-high 36 points, but the Lancers nonetheless lost to Westlake, 63-58.

Forward Melissa Gische had 25 points to lead a trio of double-figure scorers for Westlake (4-0 in league play).

Thousand Oaks is 8-9, 1-3.
