Hernandez and Romero earn Player of the Game honors

Panthers girls’ basketball players Amber Hernandez and Kiara Romero were each named Player of the Game last week in games versus San Manuel and Ray, respectively.

Hernandez, a senior, scored 12 of the Panthers’ 15 points in a loss to San Manuel. She scored nine points from three-point range. She also had three rebounds in the game.

Romero scored 15 points in a loss against Ray. She was 2 for 4 from three-point range and 3 for 4 from the free-throw line. Romero, a senior, also had five rebounds in the game.

Despite the outstanding play from Hernandez and Romero, the Panthers dropped both games last week and have now lost four games in a row.

Junior Cierra Navarrette continues to dominate the boards as she collected a combined 18 rebounds in two games.

The Panthers will look to end their losing streak in a game at Hayden on December 17, 2013, before playing a home game against Miami on December 20. Both games begin at 5:30 p.m.
