Girls owed their due, too …

While discussions are ongoing concerning the area’s outstanding high school male performers, how about the girls?

There are names that have become common place in the daily coverage, but there are some athletes out there who will be just as deserving when it comes to all-league and all-area consideration.
While I am hesitant to single out individuals at this point for fear of building false hope, nonetheless there are names that come quickly to mind (remember, these are just for starting the dialog):
La Serna center Jenna French
St. Paul guard Lesley Vodicska
Cantwell forward Cynthia Duarte
California forward Lyanna Augborne
Santa Fe guard Debbie Chavez

Hmmmm, wouldn’t be a bad starting lineup.
Remember, that’s just to whet the appetite.
Share other names of those who could be candidates for post-season honors.

    I agree with you. St. Paul is loaded this year. I’m looking at a Marlborough-St. Paul final just like 2005.

    As far as other area teams go, don’t eliminate La Serna yet. I see them in the finals as well against Indio.

    i may have been wrong about st pauls girls bb team this year maybe the coach can play some good teams early in the season to get the kids ready for the playoffs the coach likes to beat up on the little sisters of mercy schools PLAY SOME TOP 10 SCHOOLS EARLY IN THE SEASON IT WILL ONLY HELP COME PLAYOFF TIME the talent is in place for next year do the right thing coach

    La Serna has brought it to a level never met before all in part to our seniors.

    Good Luck Lady Lancers.

    Since I have seen many of the girls games played in the “area” and coach many of them, I would like to give my version of an “all-area” team and, just as important, players to watch for next year. My all-area would be the Vodicska sisters and Savini-St.Paul, Jenna French-LS, Anna Augborne-Cal, Deb Chavez-SF. I have not seen Cynthia Duarte play so I cannot comment on her. Other players to look out for next year: Jessica Vingerelli and Brittany Aranda-SF, Daisy Bueno and Angela Van Sickel-SP, Ericka Arroyo-Cal, Bri Vasquez-LS, and Loren Gurrola-Whit. I am anxious to see how these girls make an impact on their teams and their respective leagues.

    Whittier Christian has Whitley Brown, soph.(12.1 ppg/9.5 rpg/2.7 apg) and Elissa Ronquillo, jr.(10.2 ppg/5.6 rpg/2.7 spg). Also, at any time, any of the other playes on the team can step up and make a difference (i.e Annelise Calzada in the CIF Finals) Coach Crammer has built a “Team” in a day and age when selfishness and individulaity rewarded. These girls put the team before their own stats.

  • B&G Parent
