Sierra Canyon has two sensational guards who bring ‘super swag’ to The Trailblazers’ back-court. #23 PG Ryann Payne has punched her ticket to TCU. Shows superior ball handling skills and a very nice shooting stroke from mid-range to behind the arc. Finishes well and limits her mental mistakes. Would like for her to show a little bit more passion and effort on the defensive side of the ball, to become a lock down defender for coach Alicia Komaki and the Trailblazers this season. Will also help when she suits up for TCU n the Fall.
Vanessa De Jesus is another poised young lady who brings her own personality to the hardwood, which is a joy to watch. Advanced ball handling skills with great court vision and passing. Leads her team by initiating the offense and running sets but can slide into the 2G position and be effective with her back-court running mate Ryann Payne. Would like to see her stay patient and not force the issue, which can lead to costly turnovers and momentum changers. This young lady is just a Super Sophomore (good lord!), so she’ll be racking up highlight plays for her Mix-tapes for the next couple of years, that’s for sure.
Sierra Canyon is scheduled to play Serra tonight, December 7, 2017 during the Sierra Canyon Invitational Tourney hosted by Sierra Canyon High School. Serra comes in with a few thoroughbreds of their own and a solid coaching staff who can draw something up and have thier players execute on the fly – witnessed during the 2017 Redondo Beach Tourney – so this should a marquee match up.
Take a look at the Sierra Canyon vs Serra contest played January 09, 2016, as we bring you bonus footage from the 2016 Sierra Canyon Showcase.
