Lady Cougars turnovers cost semifinal contest

Submitted By Timothy Hess

The Newark Memorial High School Girls Varsity Basketball Team traveled to Orinda on Tuesday night to take on #1 seed Miramonte Lady Matadors (25-4). The teams traded baskets throughout the very competitive first two-quarters, with the score tied 35-35 at the half. The "turnover bug" and balanced scoring from the Lady Matadors in the third quarter proved to be too much for the Cougars to overcome as they lost, 84-67.

Lady Cougars Highlights: Haylee Nelson (game high 26-points, 22-rebounds), Alayha Bell (21-points), Rylee Sarasua (9-points), Maleia Colker (6-points).

The Lady Cougars first NorCal game will be on Wednesday, March 7, with opponent, location, and game time to be announced.

Good luck Cougars!

Additional Notes:
Congratulations to Newark Memorial High School Senior Haylee Nelson on her selection as Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) ÒMost Valuable PlayerÓ for the second straight season. Haylee led the MVAL in scoring (24.7 ppg.), and rebounds (16.5 rpg.). She was named to the All-League First Team for the fourth consecutive season. Her coaches and teammates are so very proud of the accomplishment. Well done!
