Girls Basketball: Where’s the love for Rosemead?

I’ll start by saying it was the first girls basketball game I covered at Rosemead High. But here’s my beef. Rosemead clinched the Mission Valley League title outright Wednesday night with a 42-27 win over Arroyo, and the Panthers can’t even get better than a decent sized home crowd? Are you kidding me? Rosemead has won seven of its nine last league championships. Don’t tell me ‘Mead fans are just used to this kind of treatment. What, are they waiting for the playoffs. These girls deserved better. The crowd did get bigger when the boys game started, but no doubt this season belongs to the Panthers, who now are 18-4 and 9-0 in league. It was also Rosemead’s second straight league title. Granted, the game wasn’t all that pretty to see, what with Arroyo (14-11, 6-3) shooting 23 percent on the night. But at the very least you should have gone to see one of the area’s best shooting guards in senior Evelyn Ramirez, pictured below. She scored 23 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had seven steals. The Panthers no doubt will miss Ramirez, a four-year letterman, after she graduates, but not to worry. Rosemead will have another future four-year letterman in fellow freshman Melody Gauthier, daughter of Rosemead coach Jay Gauthier. Melody scored 12 points and went 3 for 4 from the 3-point line. And believe me, those 3-pointers were way out in the boonies, college stuff right there.

    here’s a thought miguel… its girls high school basketball, its awful, so no one goes. its hard to watch. i mean the final score was 42-27. c’mon now…

  • Miguel Melendez

    Nevertheless, Rosemead won its second straight league title, and if nothing else, at least go watch Evelyn Ramirez put crossover moves, or Melody Gauthier launching 3-pointers from way downtown. Just my two cents.

  • Come and see a game.

    Thanks Miguel for supporting us. At least a few people appreciate all the hard work done in the classroom and on the court. We even have a very good team grade point average and we’re ranked 10th in CIF, which some say is the best in our school’s history. It’s sad that there are any people that think girl’s don’t matter. Girls work hard too representing our school and the stands should be filled so everyone can have fun. They should be filled for our boys teams also. Our principal comes to our games and checks on away games he can’t make. He really supports us. Our girls also donate time in the community because we want to help and are not asking for anything in return. So far this year your paper is the only one that has come to our game and reported on it and had a photographer take pictures. Thanks. We play for the love of the game and teamwork. That’s something we’ll remember along with our memories of those students who do show up and some students even hold up their hand-made signs to support us and they have fun too.

    To the guy said: so when Rosemead boys beat Arroyo by about 30 that was awful also? Maybe if people would take the time to support our youth then our youth might be more motivated in life…that someone cares. Sometimes, whole towns get behind their teams. That’s great for the team, the school and the community. Instead of complaining, why don’t you go to your closest high school and watch a girls game and congratulate them on their effort. I still remember and can accurately picture when neighbors and friends came to basketball games in high school. Most scores I don’t remember, I do remember the support. If you don’t know where your local high school is, it looks like Rosemead could use some more fans.

  • MOORS!!!

    CONGRATS TO THE MEAD LADY PANTHERS BASKETBALL TEAM ON THEIR 2ND STRAIGHT LEAGUE TITLE. I WAS A SOFTBALL COACH IN THE RYA(ROSEMEAD YOUTH ASSOCIATION)SO I HAVE LOVE FOR THE MEAD. I AM A FOOTBALL GUY AND I TOO GO SUPPORT OUT LADY MOORS PROGRAMS. ALL THESE LADIES WORK JUST AS HARD AS ANYONE ON CAMPUS. OUR LADY MOORS JUST WON THEIR FIRST LEAGUE TITLE IN 17YRS. AND IT FEELS GOOD TO HAVE BEEN THERE IN THAT CLINCHING GAME TO SUPPORT THEM. GOODLUCK TO THE LADY PANTHERS IN CIF AND TO THE LADY MOORS!! KEEP PLAYING YOUR HEARTS OUT LADIES!

  • I heard

    I heard the boys and girls basketball teams support each other on all levels and some football and boys soccer team members also go to the basketball games and are the ones that really make noise for the boys and girls teams. At one girls game the players on the bench started their own cheer because no cheerleaders were there. Rosemead games are a lot of fun for the fans, so more poeple should go.

    The above blog was well done. I have been seeking just this kind of article.I am appreciative for this information.

  • JJIMENEZ

    The reason there isn’t much support for basketball in the MVL for either boys or girls is due mainly to guidelines that the league adopted in the late 90′s to early 00′s which curtailed fan participation .

    Not sure if the crowds were getting too rowdy or maybe fights were breaking out,(Mead fans may remember the days of THE BLEACHER BUMS of 80′s & early 90′s) but face painting, standing, noise makers, reading newspapers as the other schools starting line up were being announced, anything meant to distract players were not allowed.(atleast thats what the sign in the Mead’s gym use to say, and was strictly enforced) so going to a game was no fun.

    Thank GOD when the Mead’s gym was repainted they either took down the sign or painted over it, regardless the damage has been done. Games are a lil’ more entertaining but the days of the BLEACHER BUMS are over.

    !!!FEAR THE MEAD!!!WAR PANTHERS!!!

  • Support Players

    So what are you doing Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m.?
    Why not go to your local high school playoff girls game?
    Everyone is welcome at Rosemead this Thursday. Let’s get some fun and spirit back into the games. Come and cheer for the girls. Rosemead got a #9 ranking in the playoffs, probably the highest ever in the school’s 50-years-plus history. The girls work hard, fundraise for the program (which is a real challenge in these tight economic times), donate their time in the city for projects, and really enjoy playing together as a team while being respectful to the competition.
    Can you come out and support them? The team, including the eight seniors, would probably really appreciate it. And, you should have fun too!

  • Are you going too?

    To JJIMENEZ and Fritz Poole:
    Are you going to Rosemead game on Thursday night?
    Why don’t you wear a maroon or grey shirt and we’ll start a sophisticated, positive and supportive cheering section that can make noise without being asked to be quiet like the gym in past games?

  • JJIMENEZ

    I’ll be @ the boys game on Wednesday thats for sure…

    !!!FEAR THE MEAD!!!WAR PANTHERS!!!

  • Are you going too?

    Okay so that’s two people for sure for Wednesday’s boy’s game and one for sure for Thursday’s girl’s game.

  • Tough Ending

    Mission Valley league is tough for its teams. Rosemead boys win league and get a #6 team, while #3 from league team gets #13 seed opponent. Rosemead girls beat four ranked teams, go 19-4 overall and 10-0 in league this year and get Monrovia, a semi-finalist last year, in the first round. Last year Rosemead wasn’t ranked and got Charter Oak and won easily in first round. Didn’t matter anyway, Campbell Hall and Rosemead boys had a good game although Rosemead lost by 20. Rosemead girls against Monrovia was tough as “they let them play” a very rough game which appeared to be to Monrovia’s big advantage. Oh well, no one expects anything from the public school Rosemead players anyways. They do have their own team memories.

    Zune and iPod: Most men and women compare the Zune on the Touch, but immediately after seeing how slim and surpr isingly small and mild it is, I contemplate it to be a relatively distinctive hybrid that combines qualities of equally the Touch and also the Nano. It can be extremely colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch display screen, however the player itself feels really somewhat smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, whilst being just a hair thicker.

    I suppose Aol. Need to be each the most beneficial and the worst in the 12 months. It’s the most effective, since yes, it will be observed by far the most. It also does set a long run for that brand, very unique from their previous as Net, Inc. It really is also really inventive; it really is quite various. It really should be the worst although because the execution is terrible. The notion, however is creative, just sucks. There is little or no cons istency, as well as the wordmark bores me.
