After a triumphant back to back Miramonte League Championships under their belt, Coach Leon Bruce and the Olympian Girls’ Basketball team try to rebound with a bright future looking ahead for them this season.

This season is a rebuilding season for the girls because Coach Bruce said that “It’s very hard trying to recruit new players”.

The girls mindset for the season is to always give 110% on the court even though they won back to back league titles.

The girls basketball team chemistry was rocky at the start but, now “It’s great” said senior captains Alyah Lozano, Briana Gomez, and Kassandra Aguilera because this season has some brand new faces on all three teams but, hopefully this season they start jelling before season starts.

There are many points that the girls need to improve upon this season but, the main ones are reducing turnovers, finishing their shots when they shoot for a basket, and boxing out their opponent.

The girls have had four games so far winning 4-2. The girls first game was a close one with 38-34 with Kassandra Aguilera (12) making the final three pointer that pushed them to the win against Garey.

The girls played against La Puente and won 42-13. Ashton (10) with five point, 17 rebounds and two steals and a block. Kassandra Aguilera (12) with 22 points, 14 rebounds, andfour steals and a block. Briana Gomez (12) with seven points, seven rebounds, five assists, and five steals.

Although the girls lost their game against Pomona, the girls never let them win easily.

Their game against Edgewood proved this as they went into overtime twice and ended with three players who hadn’t fouled. Sadly, the girls lost, but they hope that this lost only helps them improve for future games and reach league champions.
