GARDEN GROVE– Orangewood Academy opened up the CIF 1-AA Southern Region playoffs in style on Tuesday night, defeating Carlsbad 72-54 on an outstanding team-wide effort dishing the ball.
Hannah Stines showed off her outstanding passing vision notching a 15-point, 16-rebound, 10-assist triple-double to go with three blocks. Additionally, just one day after signing with Cal State Fullerton, Aixchel Hernandez led the Spartans with a career-high 29 points to go with 11 boards, and a few outstanding dimes herself.
Keyla Romo added 13 points for OA, and Krystal Caldwell finished with nine points and the assist of the night, coming in around-the-back fashion to Hernandez in the fourth quarter to punctuate the win.
Despite the loss, Carlsbad gave the Spartans a strong battle, and moved the ball well as a team in its own right. Renza Milner led the Lancers with 16 points, Madison Huhn scored 12 points, and Alexa Mikeska finished with 10.
