LA JOLLA – In the toughest slate of ballgames for Monte Vista High over the weekend, the Monarchs gained a split, but there was also an important individual accomplishment.

De Leon entered the weekend with 999 points following a 26-point effort against Hilltop. The senior co-captain then reached the plateau with a XXX-point effort against Grossmont, then added MM more points in Saturday’s (Jan. 21) road triumph at The Bishop’s, 57-40, at Fleet Center.

De Leon joins Mount Miguel senior guard Zanna Hurst in going 1K during the week.


  • Monarchs head coach Sabrina Jimenez, a three-time member of the All-East County team ( twice on the first team)in scoring 1,112 points when attending Granite Hills, is also a member of the 1,000-point Club, scoring 1,112 career points as a member of the Eagles under then head coach Jerry Parker, who now heads Pacifica High in Oxnard.
  • Against The Bishop’s, junior guard Malia Flores paced Monte Vista (14-6 overall) with a game-high 21 points. The total was also a season-best for Flores, topping a 20-point effort against Valley Center on Nov. 23.
