SAN DIMAS — San Dimas High School girls basketball coach Gary Jackson figured the Saints would have a rough December, but could figure it out and be a challenger in the Valle Vista League come January.
But it’s hard to imagine he thought the start to the season would be this tough.
Chloe Werling scored 11 points and Morgan Allen had 10 and Chino Hills added to San Dimas’ woes with a 54-12 victory over the Saints in a San Dimas Sherise Edmonds Memorial Tournament pool-play game at San Dimas High School.
The Huskies scored 24 of the first 26 points and forced 26 turnovers to improve to 3-3.
Aunisha Leffridge scored six points for the Saints, who slipped to 0-6. San Dimas was 1 of 17 from the floor and had 13 turnovers in the first half.
San Dimas coach Gary Jackson: “It’s been our downfall all year. We’ve been battling some injuries and we seem to get off to slow starts. When we dig a hole that deep, (the opposition) sees blood, and its hard to fight back from the that.”
