Heading into last week, the Girls’ Varsity Basketball team had three wins (against Mar Vista, Southwest El Centro, and La Jolla High School), to two losses (against OLP and Chula Vista High School).

On Thursday, Nov. 29, the Islanders were scheduled to play at home against Pacifica Christian High School. Unfortunately, the rain prevented even an indoor basketball game. “Last year, we had to delay a game that was in progress at half due to a leak in the roof in the Coronado High School gym,” says Coach Toler Goodwin. Although the rain did not come until 10 PM, the game was canceled due to the forecast of rain from 6:30 to 9 PM.

By Saturday evening, the skies were clear of rain, and the Islanders were able to play Pacifica Christian, from Santa Monica, CA, in the CHS gym. “Overall we had a solid defensive performance and had contributions from everyone,” shares Coach Goodwin. Coronado dominated Pacifica Christian all the way through, leading 20-2 by the end of the first quarter and 28-5 by halftime. Senior Sarah Barns was the Islanders top scorer with twenty-two points, as well as eleven rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Junior Lauren White followed with twenty total points scored, eleven rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Juniors Rosemarie Czerewko and Gianna Spatafore each scored four points. The final score read 54-14.

This puts the team’s current season record at four wins to two losses.

Upcoming Game:
  • Thursday, December 6 vs. O’Farrell High School @ 3:30 PM (Away)
  • Friday, December 7 vs. Sweetwater High School @ 7:00 PM (Away)
