The Lady Trojans basketball team may have entered the Northern Section California Interscholastic Federation playoffs as the No. 3-seeded squad — but the girls’ level of play and 59-23 win against Division V tournament opener Los Molinos last week left no doubt that head coach Harlon Sevier’s group was playing at the top of its game.
After jumping out to a 31-9 halftime lead, the Trojans, led mostly in offensive output by senior Angel Garrish’s 11-point drive in the paint, took a serious slowdown as the Bulldogs held Quincy to just six points in the third period.
The Trojans stepped up their game in the fourth period, however, thanks to a blistering 16-point scoring run by the duo of Jasmin Sherman and Taylor Friden — and the equally stout defensive play of freshman Ashlyn Wingfield who, despite only being brought up to the varsity level in the past few games, managed to log four offensive rebounds, an assist and a steal.
