San Manuel Miner

The San Manuel girls’ basketball team extended their winning streak to seven games last week with victories over Tohono O’Odham and Hayden. The Miners’ last loss came on Nov. 27, 2013 against Tombstone.

The Miners are getting it done on both ends of the court. During their seven-game winning streak they are holding their opponents to an average of 21.5 points per game and are outscoring them by an average of over 19 points per game. In other words, the Miners have been dominating teams during the streak.

In Friday’s 29-point blowout win against Hayden, Angelic Zuniga recorded another double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds. Zuniga, a senior, is averaging 18 points and 12 rebounds per game. Junior Kadi Manfred played a very solid game as well with 10 points, six rebounds and four steals. The Miners recorded 16 steals as a team which largely accounted for the lopsided score.

The Miners will return to action after the holidays with two games on both days, Jan. 3, 2014 and Jan. 4, 2014. They will play Coolidge at home and at Hayden on Jan. 3. On Jan. 4, they will play Imagine Prep Coolidge before traveling to Immaculate Heart in Tucson. Game times for both days are 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., respectively.
