Their opponent was first-ranked Huskies of Rolling Hills Prep. The atmosphere was electric as Avalon fans filled their side of the gym. The game began with the Huskies winning the jump ball :and scoring immediately. Rolling Hill continued its scoririg going up 10 - 2 before Avalon responded behind Eli Chavoya's two 3-point shots to come within 4. But Bridgette Adams from Rolling Hills hit a 3-point shot in the final seconds to give them a 17-10. Avalon-continually broke Roll- ing Hill's press that caused them to extend out. The Lancers had a hard time against the athleticism and the size as turnovers led to easy baskets for the Huskies. The Lancers could not seem to get in offensive rhythm as they went into the half down 36- 17. Avalon came out the same aso they ended the second. They were never able to find an Offensive rhythm as RHP went on to beat Avalon 65-31. "I think for being in the championship game for the first time, nerves got to us" said Coach David Hart. "But I'm so proud that they never gave up. We've had a great season and its a huge accom- plishment to get this far, I believe we represented our hard working com- munity well and we still have state." The Lady Lancers may be proud, going further than any Ava- lon basketball team has gone in history. Now they are looking to be the first to go into the second round of the State Championships. They are playing Tri-City Chris- tian in Vista on March 7. David Hart is the Avalon girls basketball coach. W Mar2012 120 Hill Street - Great View Duplex. Main Unit- 2 BR, 1.75 BA.
