Jesse Jones / Union Democrat Bret Harte standout guard Kelsey Switzer (3) pulls up for a jump shot in the Bullfrogs 46-35 win over Los Banos on Tuesday in the first round of the Division IV Sac-Joaquin Championships in Angels Camp.
Kelsey Switzer took care of the first half. Jessie Evans handled the second.
