Comanche News · Girl’s Varsity Basketball Takes 3rd in the Garden Grove Tournament


The Girl’s varsity Basketball Team headed to Garden Grove High School for their post Christmas tournament this past week. After a sloppy first round win over Garden Grove, the girls found a way to beat a tough Westminster team in overtime 54-53 in the quarter finals. In the semi-finals, they would take on the 3rd ranked team in the City Section, Legacy High School. It was a battle from the start as neither team would lead by more that four points through the first half and Canyon led 31-28 as the half ended. The second half would be a different story as the Comanches offense went cold. With two minutes left in the game they would cut the lead to four, trailing 47-43. They would get no closer and suffer their first loss of the season, 55-48. The disappointment did not last long and the girls bounced back in the third place game defeating the 5th ranked team in the Central Section, Orosi High School, 43-35. Gianna Furumoto was selected to the All Tournament team after playing some of her best games of the year. Canyon is now 12-1 and ranked #1 in CIF Division 2A, #9 in Orange County, and #23 in California.
