The San Manuel Miners girls’ basketball team, the 16th seed, will face the 17th-seeded Tombstone Yellow Jackets in the first round the Division IV State Championship. The game will be played at Bradshaw Mountain High School on Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

The Miners enter the championship tournament with a record of 21 – 7. They are coming off a first-round sectional tournament loss to Immaculate Heart last weekend. Angelica Zuniga, Analisa Robles and Kadi Monfred will be expected to lead the way for Miners. Zuniga averages 16 points and 11 rebounds per game.

The Yellow Jackets enter the game versus the Miners with a record of 14 – 14 and a five-game winning streak. Sophomore Rachel Cummings and junior Maira Nunez are the leading scorers for the Yellow Jackets with each averaging 9 points per game. Junior Haley Stites averages 7 rebounds per game.

The Yellow Jackets will be battle tested as they prepare for the first round game against the Miners. With their 14 – 14 record, they likely need to win each of their final five games to qualify for the tournament.

The winner of this matchup will face the tournament’s top-seed team, Valley Union, in the second round on Saturday, Feb. 22.
