ONTARIO - Almost 30 minutes after Santa Margarita’s season ended, Zaire Williams appeared through the doors of the locker room and buried her face into her father’s chest.

RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA – At first, they didn’t say a word to each other.

SANTA ANA - It’s borderline blasphemous to throw around the phrase “losing streak” when talking about Mater Dei’s girls basketball team.
Not since 2008 had the Monarchs dropped back-to-back contests.
