Senior guard captain Chris Arambula was one of the reasons why.
The senior helped the Eagles get a pair of big wins last week, including the El Centro City Championship against Central Union High on Friday.
Due to circumstances out of his control, the Eagles forfeited five games, including last week’s wins. That, however, doesn’t take from Arambula’s performance.
