While boys basketball is getting underway, hoopsters on the

girls side have already been doing their thing on the hardwood. The St. Monica

girls basketball team is not same squad is was a year ago when it boasted CIF

Division 4A Player of the Year Briana Harris. 

Harris, the Camino Real League

MVP, took her school-record 1,424 points with her to the next phase in her

life. The loss of that kind of point production has already been felt by the

Mariners. After making it to the CIF championship game this past spring, St.

Monica is off to a rough start to its season. 

The Mariners are sitting with a

1-3 record, the team’s latest defeat to Animo South Los Angeles. Animo defeated

the Mariners 52-48. Getting points may be a problem for the Mariners this

season. In their three defeats this season, the Mariners have been held below

50 points. 

In the three losses, St. Monica has surrendered 50 or more points,

dropping contests to Eagle Rock (51-46), Animo South Los Angeles (52-48) and to

Walnut (51-39). Coincidently, the Mariners’ only win of the season thus far was

a 57-28 victory over Rowland. 

The Mariners will be participating in the South

East Winter Classic before hosting Crossroads in the St. Monica Winter Classic

next week.
