Lady Bears get in their hoops while they can

DOWNEY - The Lady Bears basketball team recently returned from San Diego where they competed in the San Diego Classic July 19-22.The Lady Bears followed that up with a trip to Las Vegas from July 22-29. The Lady Bears performed well and were challenged by playing some of the best teams locally, as well as teams from other states. Warren also went 4-0 in the Cal Swish College Viewing Showcase from July 11-13. The Lady Bears have had a busy Summer thus far and are gelling together as a team as they continue to improve. The beginning of August marks the mandated C.I.F. "Dead Period" where there will be no basketball scheduled or played. This "dead period" represents a nice break for coaches and players to recharge their batteries in preparation for the Fall - both in the classroom and on the court. As the last week in August approaches, teams will be back in full swing and practices will resume along with the start of the new school year. Coach Palmer is very pleased with how well her players are competing and improving from tournament to tournament. Coach Palmer said that she is continuing to receive excellent play from junior guard Priscilla Gaxiola, sophomore guard Vivian Hernandez, junior Jacinda Reyes and freshman Janeane Hernandez. Other Lady Bears receiving more minutes and stepping up are senior Michelle Navarro, senior Justene Reyes and junior Hallesha Williams.
