Sea Kings Set For A Great Season
• Senior players lead the Palos Verdes High girls’ varsity basketball team this season.
The girls’ basketball program at Palos Verdes High School has always been solid, but it looks like this season is going to be one for the books.
The Sea Kings have come out strong in their preseason and, so far, have a track record of 6-1. Most notably, they played in the Corona Del Mar Tournament and came out champions. Additionally, they beat El Segundo in their winning streak.
When comparing this season to other years, senior captain Claire Malone said, “In past seasons we have always done all right, but this year we are doing really well and off to a much stronger start.”
With this newfound success, the basketball team has higher goals than ever before and the potential to achieve them.
From beating Mira Costa, Peninsula and Redondo and making it to CIF, this season is full of hopes, dreams and predictions that are bound to bring about new experiences and triumphs for the Sea Kings.
Ariana Sunjara, another senior captain, said, “We are expected to be much better than last year, it even looks like we have a good chance at winning CIF, or at least progressing really far, if we stay in the same division that we were in last year.”
Both Malone and Sunjara attribute much of their success to the incredible chemistry that the team shares.
Malone describes it like this: “Each of my teammates is a close friend of mine, which makes playing together so much better, because we know, love and trust each other, which is essential to team chemistry on the court.”
She went on to say, “Our coach doesn’t even have to make us spend quality time together doing team bonding because he knows that we do that already on our own, and that we love to hang out with each other outside of basketball.”
Sunjara reiterated this message when she described her teammates, making sure to mention that she sees “every player as one of my closest friends.”
PV girl’s basketball is off to a strong start, and seems to be getting better due to the hard work, talent, and the unmatched chemistry of the players.
