Bolsa Grande's Waked scores 43 in rout of Calvary Chapel
GARDEN GROVE – Bolsa Grande’s Sebastian Waked doesn’t have any college offers.
That’s not been for a lack of talent.
Waked scored a career-high 43 points in leading the Matadors past Calvary Chapel, 85-42, Wednesday night in a nonleague game at Bolsa Grande High.
The senior guard started hot and remained so throughout. Waked scored 32 points in the first half, setting a school record. He finished 14 of 17 from the field and made all seven of his free throws.
“I’m not going to lie. It’s kind of heartbreaking to not be looked at by other schools,” Waked said. “You just have to work hard. That’s all I have been doing for four years.”
Led by Waked, Bolsa Grande jumped on top of Calvary Chapel, 15-3, in the first three minutes. The Eagles (6-9) trailed, 27-12, at the end of the first quarter.
Nine forced turnovers in the first quarter helped Bolsa Grande speed out to its early lead.
Calvary Chapel was led by Kevin White, who had seven points, three steals, and two blocks. Jacob Rogers and Kaden Headington each had eight points.
The Matadors open Garden Grove League play with a game against Los Amigos next Wednesday.
“We’ve all shown that we can score, but can we stop the other team from scoring?” Bolsa Grande coach Scott Snyder said. “I think that is what it is going to come down to.”
