San Manuel Miner

The Miners girls’ basketball team defeated Mesa Prep and Chandler Prep last week in extending its winning streak to five games. It’s the third time this season they have won at least five straight games.

The Miners had three players score in double figures in the victory over Chandler Prep. Analisa Robles and Anjelica Garica each had a game-high 12 points. Felicia Gomez had 10 points. Leading scorer Angelica Zuniga was held to 6 points. Zuniga finished with less than 10 points scored for only the second time this season.

The Miners defense continues to be stifling. Their opponents have been held to less than 40 points in 19 of the last 20 games.

The Miners will play an improving Ray Bearcats’ team on January 28, 2014 before a top cross-divisional matchup with San Carlos on January 30. The Bearcats have won 5 of their last 7 games and are much improved since the return of super sophomore Stormee Galka.

In San Carlos, the Miners will battle one of the top teams in the state. The Braves have only one loss so far this season and are currently seeded fourth in the most recent Division III rankings at www.aia365.com. Their lone loss, a 2-pt loss, came against Verrado in the Copper Cities Tournament Championship game. The Miners are currently seeded ninth in Division IV.
