The girls’ basketball varsity team finished their season in second place with an overall record of 16-7 and a league record of 9-3. The Lady Blackhawks will have their first round of CIF on Feb. 15.

“I am excited for a CIF opportunity. I feel that our team is starting to peak at the right time,” said Head Coach Electra Viveros. “If we continue to work hard and play hard, I see us winning several games. It’s not necessarily the best team that always wins; sometimes it’s the team that has endurance and can play well at the right time.”

On Feb. 8, they won their last home DVL game against the Indio Rajahs with a score of 42-22. Right before the game, the Blackhawk seniors were presented with a rose and a cake with their names in it. The seniors walked onto the court with their families while their future plans and advice to underclassmen were announced.

On Feb. 6, the Blackhawks took on Cathedral City High at an away DVL game. The ladies had high hopes of coming out with a win; however, they lost to the Lions with a score of 53-77. The score was not much of a big difference from the first time the Blackhawks played the Lions this season.

The Lady Blackhawks hosted Xavier Prep on Feb. 1, scoring 23 more points than they did the first time this past season against the Saints, concluding the game with a score of 67-35.
