SANTEE (1-22-17) — El Capitan led 13-11 at halftime of the Steve Albers Memorial Shoot Out on Saturday (Jan. 21) and pushed their lead to 21-9 in the third quarter, finishing strong in the fourth for the 48-21 victory over Point Loma

STEPHANIE ADAMS led the Vaqueros with a double-double of 15 points and 17 rebounds plus 5 blocks and an assist.

JORDAN GRANDY had her second strong game in a row with a double-double of 13 points and 11 rebounds in addition to hitting 3 treys, dishing 2 assists and making 2 blocks.

MARIE COOK added 11 points and 8 rebounds, dished 3 assists, made 2 blocks and stole 4 balls.

DANIELLE PIMENTEL scored 9 points including a 3-pointer.

El Cap coaches had said that Grandy has been hesitant to shoot 3s but she’s a 3-point specialist and they’ve been pushing her to shoot them.

El Cap improved to 17-5.

El Capitan:  Stephanie Adams 15 (17 reb, 1 ast, 5 blk), Jordan Grandy 13 (11 reb, 2 ast, 2 blk), Marie Cook 11 (8 reb, 3 ast, 2 blk, 4 stl), Danielle Pimentel 9 (2 reb, 1 ast, 3 stl).

WEST HILLS 50, HORIZON 48 – CARLY RALEY pitched in 16 points in Saturday’s (Jan. 21) Steve Albers Memorial Shoot Out action, and MAYA CLEMONS and VIVIAN PANELA each tossed in 11 points for West Hills.


Even though the Pack led 40-33 at the half they almost let it get away down the stretch with too many turnovers and missed free throws.

“I thought we played a great first half,” said Wolf Pack coach RYAN KINSER. “We got looks on offense and defensively we took away what they like to do. One of the keys was to defensive rebound and we did a good job of that the first 2 quarters.


“We came out the first four minutes of the second half and built a 16 point lead. The last quarter and a half we played undisciplined basketball,” Kinser continued. “We still had a lead of 7 after the 3rd but they chipped away in the 4th mostly because of our turnovers.  With a minute left we were up 4 but missed three consecutive free-throws and threw the ball away twice.


“I was happy with the win and the effort we played with but disappointed with the bad mental mistakes we made down the stretch.”
West Hills:  Carly Raley 16, Maya Clemons 11, Vivian Panela 11, Kerrie Daniels 7, Helena Keohane 3, Jessica Fondas-Ryan 2.


HARVARD-WESTLAKE 70, MOUNT MIGUEL 40 – Mount Miguel traveled north and was knocked out by Harvard-Westlake in Saturday’s (Jan. 21) non-league competition.


It was a game of chase for the Matadors, who trailed 44-22 at the half.


SATERA BATES led Mount Miguel with 23 points and 5 rebounds, while CAMARA DOUGLAS pitched in 10 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.


Mount Miguel:  Satera Bates 23 (5 reb), Camara Douglas 10 (6 reb), Laila Smith 6 (2 ast), Tiaja Bennett 1 (4 reb, 3 stl), Michelle Corley (4 reb, 2 ast), Deyonna McBride (3 reb, 1 stl).


SWEETWATER 42, MONTE VISTA 37 – TAYLOR YOUNG led the Monarchs with 13 points.
