Girls Basketball: Diamond Ranch takes care of Rosemead 50-33; Bishop Amat, Bonita, Glendora, Wilson advance

Diamond Ranch 50, Rosemead 33: Tai Lark scored a team-high 16 points and Lauren Graves added 12 for Diamond Ranch in its second-round victory over Rosemead, which had to play without three-time Mission Valley League MVP Melody Gauthier, who broke her hand in the final week of the season after averaging 23 points. Rosemead didn’t look intimidated early, racing to a 9-1 lead and getting a game-high 20 points from Sydney Hua and nine points from Lauren Diep, but Diamond Ranch was too physical and improved to 21-7 to move on to the quarterfinals. Diamond Ranch played without head coach Mike James, who was unavailable due to a death in the family. Rosemead finishes the season 20-7.

    Workman was placed in such a monsterous division against schools that are best in the state. Chino hills, wilson, ayala and diamond ranch both advanced to third round so easily. In the next two years, Workman has a chance in competing with the big dogs. Good season though lady lobos
