WHITTIER – Four California High School players scored in double figures, lifting the host Condors to a 64-53 victory Thursday over El Rancho in a Del Rio League game.

Andrew Garber scored 14 points to pace the Condors (17-6 overall, 5-1 league), who took over sole possession of first place in league.

California also received key contributions from Anthony Rodriguez, Matt Lambrecht and Brady Gravitt. Rodriguez scored 12 points while Lambrecht and Gravitt each had 11.

“It was a big win,” California coach Jason Van Duyne said. “We got Lambrecht some looks early in the game to give us some energy. Our sophomores – Gravitt, Rodriguez and (Traie) Kastl-Givens – did a great job moving the ball offensively and getting us good looks and opportunities to get high-percentage shots, and Andrew Garber did a great job defensively for us, and really helped dictate the tempo in transition.”

Emilio Burgos poured in 16 points to lead El Rancho (14-9, 4-2).
