WRITTEN BY :   Mark Fetter, Contributor

DOWNEY – The Downey High School boys’ basketball team currently has an overall record of 15-11 and a league record of 6-3.
The Vikings are 4-2 in their last six league games and wrapped up their regular season yesterday against Lynwood at Downey (score unavailable at press time). Downey lost to cross-town rival Warren at Warren on Jan. 25, 66-62. The Vikings defeated Gahr at Gahr on Jan. 30, 49-47. The Vikings then defeated Paramount at Downey 50-36 on Feb. 1 and defeated Dominguez at Dominguez on Feb. 5, 58-57.
As their league season draws to a close, Downey will now wait for their draw in the C.I.F. Division I-AA playoffs. The Vikings have improved steadily throughout the season and have played very close games in league play. Downey’s largest margin of defeat in San Gabriel Valley League play was by only four points and that happened in each of their three losses. Downey lost to Warren twice, 49-45 and 66-62 and their only other league loss was to Dominguez 64-60, respectively. Things are certainly heating up in the San Gabriel Valley League as the playoffs approach.
The Downey High School girls’ basketball team currently has an overall record of 17-8 and a league record of 5-4. The Lady Vikings are 4-2 in their last six league games and wrapped up their regular season yesterday against Lynwood at Downey (score unavailable at press time). Downey defeated cross-town rival Warren at Warren on Jan. 25, 37-32. The Lady Vikings then lost to Gahr at Gahr on Jan. 30, 59-29. The Lady Vikings then defeated Paramount at Downey 36-29 on Feb. 1 and defeated Dominguez at Dominguez 59-28 on Feb. 5.
As the league season winds down, the Lady Vikings will now wait for their draw in the C.I.F. Division I-AA playoffs. The Lady Vikings have improved steadily throughout the season and will now turn their attention towards postseason play. Coach Harris and his team are looking forward to making a nice run in the playoffs and knocking off some ranked teams in the process.
