We like what we see out of City section power El Camino Real. The girls basketball team went into Harvard Westlake and gave them a scare on their home court, eventually losing the game by a score of 54-42. It was a close game, regardless of the score, coming down to the last minute or two – showing that El Camino can play with the best of them and will be one of the favorites to win the City Section title this year.
The team is well balanced, showing the ability to pressure their opponents while playing an uptempo style of play. Head Coach Renard Beavers, Jr. has his team sitting at 6-3 during this early 2016-17 campaign and pushes his squad on every play – expecting nothing but the best from his players for 32 minutes of play. The team has losses against major powers such as Chaminade, Windward, and Harvard Westlake. They’re doing the right thing, getting that playing experience against top opponents, to help better prepare for City Section play. Becoming battle-tested indeed you feel me.
Take a look at some highlights from the Harvard Westlake game as we spotlight Jr. PG Kianna Hamilton-Fisher. The young lady went the full 32 minutes of play and showed why she will be a top recruit come her senior season next year. The Conquistadors host their own tourney this week, providing us with some good high school hoop games and a chance to see these talented group of young ladies in action. A nice Christmas present. Thanks Santa.
Become Great at what you do.
