Girls Basketball

The Girls Varsity Basketball team had their very first game of the season against Seed on November 13, 2023. The girls won their game with an incredible score of 44-5.  Currently, the team is in CIF Semifinals, with a recent 43-21 win against Southlands Christian on February 10th and an upcoming game against Antelope Valley today, February 14th.


Before the season began, I interviewed the Girls Basketball team and their coach, Jefferson Stacy. At the time of the interview the girls were still preparing for their very first game of the season. There were some mixed feelings regarding the first game. There were a lot of emotions up in the air and some just didn’t know how to feel. They are all pretty determined to have a good season. I interviewed the majority of the team.
