Girls’ Basketball Season Comes to an End

After playing in CIF, the girls’ basketball team ended with an overall record of 18-8. The LQ Blackhawks stunned many people when they made it to CIF. Though they lost in the quarterfinals on Feb. 21 to the Rolling Hills Prep Huskies with a score of 33-62, it was a great run for the Lady Blackhawks. Most players were anxious and nervous, as this had been the first time in over 17 years that LQ had made it past the first round in CIF.

After the game, team members and coaches let out tears as they talked about the season coming to an end. Some seniors even shared the lessons they learned and what they will miss about their years playing basketball at LQ.

“As cliché as it is, hard work does pay off. We gave everything and more this offseason and not only did we make it past the first round of CIF, we made it to the quarterfinals,” said Adria Burton ‘18. “There is just something so unique about the bond you create, sweating, eating, traveling, winning, and losing together. Without a doubt, I’ll miss playing basketball with this LQ team.”

Coaches Electra and Angie Viveros shared that they plan to implement more shooting, passing, and ball-handling skills for the years to come.
