GIRLS BASKETBALL: YWLA’s first 20-win season ends early

Cardinals ineligible for postseason

Young Women’s Leadership Academy finished the season with its best record in its three-year history but, rather than advancing to the playoffs, played its last game before January ended.

The reason that the Cardinals’ season came to a screeching halt Jan. 27, is that they competed as a UIL independent this season. In the previous two years, they were members of District 28-4A.

YWLA (21-12) won far more games than in those years combined, but knew before the season that the postseason was not an option. If the Cardinals had competed in a district, the top four teams would reach the playoffs, but they were outside that structure.

“I’m the kind of person that, if I can’t change that moment,” YWLA coach La Rhon Fields said, “I’ll deal with the hand that’s been dealt.”

Nonetheless, Fields is a little frustrated when he looks at Fox Tech, also a 28-4A member, and other teams in District 26-3A. The Cardinals defeated SAISD rival Fox Tech three times and fashioned a 5-2 record against members of the six-team district.

There’s little doubt that YWLA would have had a good shot to qualify for the playoffs in 26-3A.

“The way it was presented to us,” Fields said, “we could either move up to 5A or go our own way (as an independent). In our three-year history, we had one win (in 28-4A) and we wanted our girls to achieve some success. Fox Tech stayed in and was allowed to choose a level it could compete at, but we were not given the same option.”

YWLA finished 3-25 in 2012-13 in its first varsity season. Last year, the Cardinals were 1-26. In those seasons, they won one of 31 28-4A contests.

They closed this season by winning seven of their last nine games, with TAPPS 2-5A representative St. Anthony responsible for both losses.

Sophomore guard Olivia Balderas currently is the No. 2 scorer in the San Antonio area with a 23.3 average.

Valeria Serenil (6.5 points a game), Julianna Lopez (6.4), Jylian Bolton (5.9) and Karease Williams (5.6) are juniors who stepped up their level of play. Newcomer Meg Garcia became a post presence in her first organized exposure to the sport.

“We’d have liked to be in Class 3A,” Fields said. “We competed mostly against 3A and 4A teams. There’s no doubt there were a couple of teams in 28-5A we could have beaten, but we don’t have the depth to be truly effective against those schools.

“We had a chance in every game. There was not one game we went into thinking we’d be blown out, and we were only blown out once.”

If at all possible, Fields would like to have the chance to reach the postseason next year. He said one option YWLA might investigate is whether TCAL competition is more feasible.

Five of the six Cardinals juniors have participated in three sports throughout their careers and he wants that potential reward to be available to them. He also hopes to play in either a summer or fall league for the first time.

“Our mindset will be, ‘Let’s prove (this) year was not a fluke,’ ” Fields said. “We have to prove ourselves again.”

BOYS BASKETBALL: Unheralded Buttons beating ranked opponents

Central Catholic regroups after Lewis injury

Central Catholic has been rebuilt from the ground up without its five leading scorers from 2013-14, but the Buttons have come up with a winning playing rotation.

The Buttons (18-14, 2-1) have picked up the tempo and relied a bit more on their depth in fashioning a three-game winning streak that includes a pair of TAPPS District 2-5A victories. Central Catholic moved into second place with a 73-47 win at Brownsville St. Joseph (17-8, 1-2) Jan. 31 that finished the first round of district play.

The Bloodhounds were No. 24 in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches large private school rankings, but had been ranked several notches higher earlier in the season. Central Catholic is unranked.

“That was really a fun trip for us,” Central Catholic coach Bruce McConaghy said. “The kids played really well. I think they’re really excited about the way they’re playing.”

Central Catholic was a senior-laden team last year, when they fashioned a 25-8 record that included a 20-game winning streak. The Buttons’ leading scorer Tony Lewis, a University of Santa Clara signee, was the only junior among the top-five scorers, but a stress fracture limited the 6-foot-10 center to 3 ½ games this season before he was shut down for the year.

At the time, senior guard Jaime Nava also was injured, but the No. 6 scorer a year ago has returned to help lead the resurgence. Nava scored 22 points in the win over St. Joseph.

Eleven players scored for the Buttons, including Julian Rodriguez (9 points), Will Galindo (8) and Raul Aguilar (8).

“(The bench) has been really good,” McConaghy said. “We’ve had to change our style of play because of Tony’s injury. We’ve had some kids pressed into action, and they’ve responded.”

Central Catholic began the week with a 54-44 win at No. 23 Austin St. Andrew’s Jan. 27. Robert Elizondo scored a team-high 14 points. Aguilar and Tanner Nagel each scored 10.

“The quickness and tenacity of our kids got to them,” McConaghy said. “They weren’t used to playing against that. Any time you beat a team on their home court, it’s a feather in your cap.”

The Buttons rebounded from back-to-back losses to No. 4 Austin St. Stephen’s and No. 15 Antonian. McConaghy could trace the win back to the second half of the St. Stephen’s game, after the home team had established a 30-14 lead.

“We weren’t playing very well in the first half, and they’re good,” he said. “They have a 6-10 or 6-11 kid the University of Texas is interested in. We were missing a lot of shots in the first half, but then we started converting turnovers and getting to the rim.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: Highlands steering toward historic 28-5A finish

Harlandale coming together for playoff push

AREA TEAMS INCLUDED: Edison, Harlandale, Highlands, Lanier.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK TO THE SOUTHSIDE REPORTER WEBSITE:

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/communities/southside/article/Highlands-heads-toward-historic-28-5A-finish-6062061.php

Kiara Pesina is the link between two of Highlands’ best seasons.

The Owls’ sophomore point guard is helping lead this year’s team to what could be the school’s second undefeated district season. Her aunt, Rosalinda Mojica, played for Highlands when it won the first unblemished title in 1981-82.

Although Highlands wasn’t perfect during its 1982-83 district schedule, the Owls came within a win of qualifying for the state finals. Mojica missed an overtime free throw that would have helped send them to state.

“She tells me (that) every night you have to go out there and do your best,” Pesina said. “She tells me she has regretted the day she missed that free throw, and she doesn’t want that to happen to me.”

Pesina has been on a scoring binge recently. Normally more a distributor than scorer, she poured in 24 points as Highlands (23-9, 13-0) won 70-33 at Harlandale Jan. 27 and 17 points as the Owls won 59-47 over

Lanier (18-12, 10-4) at the Alamo Convocation Center.

“Kiara was coming off of a slump,” Highlands coach Adrianna Wiatrek said. “We put a lot of effort into that 2-3 zone (defense) and did well. Now the kids know they can run a 2-3 zone and score..”

Fourth-place Harlandale (15-15, 9-5), which had a four-game winning streak, was within 10-5 when junior guard Justyne Perez (14 points) nailed a three-point shot. The district leader reeled off 19 unanswered points. Highlands forced five turnovers in the quarter.

“We’ve been playing well,” Harlandale coach Jackie Contreras said, “but they’re a tough team. If you make some mistakes, they’re going to feed off them. We dug ourselves a hole we couldn’t get out of.

“I thought we played better in the second half.”

Highlands junior Aaliyah Prince scored 17 points but was held scoreless by the Indians in the second half as the Indians concentrated their defense on stopping her.

That’s where Pesina came in. The sophomore scored seven of her team’s 19 points in the third quarter.

“We saw that they went to a box-and-one (defense) to stop Aaliyah,” Pesina said. “On this team, everybody’s going to get theirs. It doesn’t matter if it’s this game or the next game.

“It’s about us being a team and getting a win.”

Analissa Hernandez scored seven points for Harlandale.

Highlands’ win against third-place Lanier left the Owls three wins from completing a sweep of District 28-5A competition. Highlands led 46-27 going into the final quarter. Lanier’s 12-point margin equaled the closest a district opponent has come to the Owls.

“It was a combination,” Wiatrek said of the fourth quarter. “I was giving everybody a chance to play.”

The Owl’s Alexis Darden scored 12 points and Prince had nine. Lanier received 16 points from Ruby Garza and 13 from Sabrina Cortinas.

“Now that we know what we’re working toward,” Wiatrek said, “we’ve got big shoes to fill.”

Harlandale got a scare at Edison (7-22, 2-11) Jan. 30, but survived for a 38-36 win. Kayla Nunez and Christi Ricondo led the Indians with seven points.

Freshman Judilynn Mayorga led Edison with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Amy Marcos finished with nine points and nine rebounds.

Harlandale recorded a key 51-38 win over fifth-place Brackenridge (12-19, 7-6) in its previous contest. The Eagles had won the first meeting 66-49 Dec. 16.

The victory enabled the Indians to pass Brackenridge in the district standings and hold the final playoff spot with three games remaining.

“We’re a different team than we were in the first round,” Contreras said. “The girls know what they need to do and who they need to stop to get a win. We’re playing our game and peaking at the right time.

“We want it. We have a lot of heart.”

When East Central traveled to South San Jan. 30, it was certain to be a clash of wills. A tortoise-and-hare confrontation, if you will.

As it did in the ancient childhood fairytale, slow and steady won the race.

The host Bobcats (20-6, 3-2) controlled the tempo from the outset of the District 28-6A game. South San wanted to prevent speedy East Central from turning it into a fire drill. The Hornets (15-11, 3-2) had scored 100 or more points twice in their first four district contests, but South San never lost sight of its objective on the way to a 67-59 win.

“They do an excellent job of getting you out of your system,” South San coach Ray Carroll said of the Hornets. “We wanted to attack, but still stay under control. It’s a credit to our kids, because we really needed to be disciplined in our efforts.”

The Bobcats’ victory tied the combatants for second place in 28-6A with Corpus Christi King (17-10, 3-2). Undefeated Corpus Christi Carroll (20-4, 5-0) led halfway through the district race.

“Our intensity was very high,” South San senior Malik Brown said. “We just kept playing together and it all came out the way we wanted it to.

“It was a pretty big game. We were 2-2 (in district), so we really needed this win.”

The Hornets, who also scored 100 in a Nov. 26 win over Edison, fell behind 12-6 to the Bobcats at the outset. South San seized control with six unanaswered points, four from post Andre Flores.

East Central never led, but managed to tie the score 54-54 with 3:06 remaining on a three-point basket from Greg White.

“From the time we tied it to the end of the game,” East Central coach Jeff Sweet said, “we just needed to play better.”

The Hornets trailed by as much as 10 points in the first half, but made their push from the free-throw line. They made seven of eight foul shots in the third quarter, but didn’t have the touch down the stretch.

“If you don’t make your free throws and you don’t shoot well against them,” Sweet said, “you’re not going to win. But give South San credit. They played very well.”

Bobcats junior Curtis Allen (28 points) scored seven points after East Central tied it, including a three-pointer with 1:34 left that extended South San’s lead to 61-56. He then grabbed a defensive rebound that led to a clinching basket from senior Michael Hernandez (11 points, 4 assists) off an assist from Olando Lopez (11 points, 4 assists).

We knew (Allen) was a great player,” Sweet said. “He hit that three and he hit two big jump shots.”

A three-point basket from senior Brandon Keno (10 points, 3 steals) accounted for the Hornets’ only points in the final minute.

“We have a star player,” Brown said, “but when we start playing as a team, it’s like the team becomes a star player. Everybody knows their role and the right way to play. It came out the way we wanted it to.”

Football standout Wanya Ward led East Central with 17 points. Ethan White produced 12 points and Hector Sifuentes contributed eight.
